You could lower one end of the rope until it hits the ground and on the side that is short tie an alpine butterfly and use a carabiner to attach it to the long end. This will give you a way to get down on one end of the rope. Once you get to the bottom of the short end begin tying slings or a cordelette to the end of the line until you reach the ground. Now you should be able to pull the rope through. This method is featured in climbing magazine november 2012 edition.

Yea, right. Like a sport climber's going to have 50 feet of slings with them.

Just bring a second rope to the crag.

Oh, and Rudmin - do you realize that you just suggested IN THE BEGINNERS FORUM that the climber intentionally rap off the end of his/her rope.
