Start up a mellow face past ten bolts to the anchors. For pitch two, step right and clip seven more. The third pitch is the best. Clip twelve bolts and while enjoying the easy arete and belay at the Ame's Way anchors. Not sure where the crux is, but it's all great climbing with bolts right where they should be.
This is the 10th route down the Pipeline. Look for the large pine up on a dirt ledge. The route is just down and right of the ledge.
12 draws. More if you are going to combine pitches.

Thinking about climbing this during the Bluegrass Festival this summer. Is it a rappel or walk off?

Can I get away with a single 60m rope?

You can get down with a 60m rope as long as you rap off the anchors from the 5.7 route on the left.

You could easily walk off this route too, but then you would have to take the last section of the Via Ferrata back down to the trail/parking area. It easy enough to do, but then again rappeling is also easy.
