The new (and wonderful) Haas guidebook calls this 10a (I think). Also, the webbing (as described in Haas) is no longer around (except for a crusty yellow piece stuck under the chockstone) and there is an old, sunbaked cordelette just laying around... not much to count on up there.
My partner and I would have slung something for the rappel, but you can easily downclimb the short upper east face to a healthy Ponderosa and scramble north to a gully from there... just skirt a bulge to the north of the summit and head on down. The exposure around this bulge convinced us that a down-lead was the best option. Anyway, you don't have to rappel to get down.
