In April of 2010 I tore my left labrum (not my labia...that just stretches).

I don't recomend rappelling the route, I had a 70 and still came up short. I had to do some really sketchy down climbing, not worth it. The walk off to the east takes about 10-15 minutes and is so much safer. A good route worth doing~
