it's pretty slabby over there. with doubble ropes or a rope and a tag you should be able to bail without haveing to rap completly into the unknown.  perhaps they only had a single rope or they could not find the quick clip anchors? I never go up on cannon without doubble ropes or a tag.

" I never go up on Cannon without double ropes or a tag."

INDEED! And in mid November? Reminds me: "Good Judgement comes from Experience--Experience comes from Bad Judgement"  ;D  We've all been there at some point, though!

From someone on the rescue team:

"35 degrees, raining, 40 mph winds, and only 7 of us. It was a long night.  We did it in 2- 250 ft hauls and walked them off."
