Who's the zealot? The climbers taking a casual walk along the ridge to return below after climbing or the fellow who seems to demand that a rap line be immediately available and adjacent to the route he has just finished so he can zip on down and move onto his next climb?
Lucander also fails to list a fourth option offered above and I believe currently used more often. That ever popular option being a walk along the ridge to the nearest of the established rappel routes.
