last Rap - 60m rope makes it to the ground
The final rap makes it to the ground without problems using a 60m rope. When you reach the knot (your feet are about 5 feet from the ground), untie it, equalize the ends, HOLD the rope above your rap device and let it slide through your rap devive. Your feet will now be on the ground, the rope stretched to its maximum and your holding it above your head. No need to scramble down.
The ASCA changes were a welcome surprise on this route. It would be a great introductory climb for a noob multi-pitch climber if it weren't for the arduous hike in.
