I wanted to post an update here - since we just recently climbed this route (Nov 2014) and wanted to give people a heads up of what to expect.
The giant flat terrace that you see in the pictures is not what you rappel down to. At least it wasn't for us. With our 60m Rope, we were only able to rappel (just barely) to a small ledge. It looks like it may not make it... but it does.
We used 3 LONG Slings to build an anchor, a PAS to allow the top belay from below the anchors focal point.
Definitely a lot of tourists will watch you - but they were all super nice to us, and even hooked us up with some great pics!

This is a really nice fun warm-up before climbing harder single-pitch routes on Moro. Or you can do what we did (Oct '14) and play around after climbing a long aid or free route. We did a few laps on it as a warm-down after S. Face. Perfect end to a perfect day!
Felt right-on for the grade. We built a trad anchor from the rocks ~10' back from the railing and belayed off of a Munter hitch.
