After hiking to the summit, we made the rappel down into the climbs just southeast of "Thank You Cindy" -- 60 meter rope should be sufficient to reach base of rock (leaving a short steep scramble down thru trees + brush).
We found the rappel by walking northwest from the summit on the main trail for about 150-250 feet. At a rock outcrop viewpoint, we went down toward the top of the cliff, first on the south side of the outcrop, then like ten feet thru low bushes to find a rope around tree with two carabiners.
Approach hike -- about 1100-1200 vertical feet of hiking up the shortest marked trail to the summmit of Crane Mt from the main trailhead parking at the end of the road - (horizontal distance around a mile).
Just a few feet southeast (climbers Right) from the bottom of the rappel is the start of an obvious diagonal crack that crosses the rappel line. We climbed it, pretty protectable, with some interesting moves, felt easier than "Thank You Cindy".
(For another route idea nearby, see Comment under "Thank You Cindy")
I think the top anchor for this rappel is about 40-60 feet southeast (climbers Right) from the top of the route "Thank You Cindy".
