|Note that the base of Lower Gibraltar is quite cramped, and 3 of the 4 routes start within just a few feet of one another. This area cannot really accommodate more than a few people at a time, and for that reason is not an ideal spot for groups.|

Respectfully, I don't think this is a good spot for "gumbies" unless you are super proficient with traditional topropes (belayer above climber) and hauling systems.
Conundrum and the Rapture are both very sustained routes. Some beginners will really struggle on these two routes.
One way to make this work is to hang a draw on each bolt of the Rapture to give beginners something positive to pull on. The Rapture requires the use of 2 to 3 directionals anyway.

Just climbed here this weekend. Found out that the route was called rapture after climbing there and ironically it was May 21.
All these routes are very fun and a great spot for beginning leaders. However, safety is critical on this rock due to the exposure at the base and although there is room for a few people, I cannot imagine being on the ledge with more than my partner.
