I read that and thought 'dude, have you ever climbed (and rapped) more than three pitches in a day? For Realz...'. Rightarmbad, Im hardly the baddest or boldest climber here, but I can think of several routes I've done where such a procedure would have added at least an hour or two to the descent, minimum, probably more. Which is just going to leave you even more tired, and prone to making mistakes at the back end of a long arse day.
