I rapped off a fixed #2 camalot with a long cord clipped to it (after testing with backup). It might be possible to continue to the top of the shoulder and rap off a tree back there. Or maybe there's an actual anchor up there. Going right after the crack ends to gain the top might work, but the rock looked a little scary over there. Going straight up, past the fixed #2, is also possible. I had a 70m. A 60m from the #2 would probably work, but'd be close.
Unless you're willing to leave your own gear behind, I wouldn't really recommend stopping here. The cam and rock seem pretty solid but the sling on the cam has aged from yellow to white. And, if you keep going, go ahead and take it with you. Let me know how it turns out.
