There is an old pin that was placed at the crux mantle move. Try not to test it since it was placed circa 1980. I've seen falls on it and it seems fine though. After the mantle move it is easy climbing. Make trad belay once you enter the alcove. I believe it takes medium / small cams. 2nd pitch: climb out of alcove onto face or chimney up and out higher up. Almost no pro on 2nd pitch, but you'd fall into the crack and not off the rock so its not really dangerous. Finish on top of a boulder after coming out of the alcove at a two bolt anchor.
Climbs most obvious crack into a chimney on the same face and to the right of "Tied to the Whipping Post".
Normal Refuge rack. One fixed pin on 1st pitch below the mantel crux. Finish at the 2 bolt anchor with rap ring ontop of a small boulder up and left after the chimney. Takes 2 ropes to double down to the ground or as use the Rap Bolters from Hell station as the intermediate.

or you can always rap to the the anchors for Rap Bolters and Whipping post, clip in and then rap again.

It is possible to double rap down on a 60m rope. You just have to swing out wide to climber's left and come down by the tree near Slime of the Century. Simul-rap is probably the best option to maximize rope stretch. I did it yesterday and it's very convenient.

The pin will hold a 10-12 foot fall. I "tested" it yesterday. This can also be climbed as one long pitch. Rope drag isn't bad because there is almost no gear on P2. We also rapped from the P2 anchor to the ground with a 60 meter rope. It was just long enough.
