Descent Options:

lower or rappel off fixed anchors.

5 out of 5 stars The lower...

...wide is the price of admission for the amazing hand crack above. Fist jam, or armbar/cupped hand jam for some with maybe a strenuous lieback. Power through the bottom and traverse out to the amazing hand-crack above.
