The Pulpit isn't necessarily a "gear protected" route. Most of the pro you will encounter will be bolts supplemented by gear as you can find it. I thought the first pitch was the toughest but all the hard parts are protected by bolts- although they are somewhat sparsely spaced (when compared to an average sport route).
For rappelling, csproul hit it exactly. Get on it, and take it to the top. It's really just like most routes at Stone, after the first couple pitches, the angle starts to ease up making the moves easier. It's one of the better moderates at Stone IMO.
