Can someone post a photo of the bottom of this rap? I'd like to know if I really need to have a 70m rope to get far enough down to begin a reasonable low-grade down-climb point. I've got a 50 and a 60m but have not yet invested in a 70. I would rather not join these two because of all the extra there would be to pull not to mention the high risk of jamming the knot in a crack. btw...nice photo!

Don't have a photo for you, just a story. We managed to do this rappel in two shorter rappels with a 60 meter. You just have to look carefully for the middle anchor. This was in July 2004. If you were hard-core enough, you might be able to downclimb this, but I don't trust my memory enough to recommend that.
