Ahh, Vermont climbing...
There are several gear anchor options atop the Rose, so I suspect the locals are flexing their ethical muscles a bit.
As far as a descent is concerned--rapping off the tree at the top of The Thorn, or a simple walk/scramble off (climber's right) are the two most common descents I've seen.
