Two good loops of webbing on the rappel anchor, only some minor wear on one of them, and a good quality rap ring on each. Took a 50m double rope, was comfortably long enough for the rap, and more than enough to climb out of the notch (leader tied into both ends and belayed as twins). Two other guys on the route down climbed into the notch on climber's left side of the ridge, and climbed out left side of the ridge, looked like both went at ~4th class.

Also, if anyone is headed up that way, mind taking a nut tool? Had to leave a BD #8 stopper at the bottom of the notch after I got it stuck (and forgot to bring a nut tool like a muppet) - I'll gladly trade good beer for it.
