I have only done clippity oce. Not familar with the terrain up there so I strapped a rope on my back and hiked up it and rapped back down. 60m made it fine. Find it hard to believe they retroed a rout to the right and did not rig it for 60's?
I would have simply walked up to the guy and coached him through whatever was nessicary to get out of his situation.

book says it takes 4 rappels to get down. i think if you go from just the first bolted anchor to the bottom you end up on this small "ledge" which is just a outcrop of the woods that you can walk down from. if they hadn't freaked out i bet they could have turned around and walked.. at the very least could have butt slid down. if it was not an exaggeration of 30' then they could have had 50m rope and came up way short.

If they were on lady and the tramp i'm not sure where you get with either length from P1 anchor..
