Anyone know if can you rap the route with a single 80M?

Rumor has it you can even rap with a 70 if you swing back into the belay below the last pitch. Double 60s gets you down to a ledge below that belay, so even if you can't make the nice big ledge you should be more than able to swing over into the belay nook (and another short rap down to the ledge).

i've done this, it's straightforward (though a bunch of raps). the rap route does not follow the route, but rappels straight down from the last belay station (trending to the left around the feature) to the top of the "second" (5.8) pitch (we climbed pitches 1 & 2 as one pitch).

the first rappel (down the last pitch) is pretty close with a 70m, and you have to work a little to keep to the left and get back to the belay. then a short 30 ft rappel to a large ledge, and a set of rap rings. down from there.
