due to a previous 'nice day out on c-buttress gone almost terribly wrong', adhere to my speeedy reply...

one 60m rope is enough, so you do nice and neat 30m absails all the way... 2 ropes = 2 much rope drag... some nice stances, normal multy-pitch rules apply...enjoy...

Hey Pony,

Magical Mystery Tour is cool, good quality route, not much runouts at all, newish bolts.
Stances are fine as well. Whats it graded these days 18 or 19? I guess the topish pitch could be 19 if you factor in the tiredness factor.
I would take 2 ropes if in-experienced in multi-pitch climbing. Depends how many people are climbing it.
Don't skip any stances when abbing off (learnt this the hard way!).
Start early and enjoy. It can get (*&^%$) hot.
As somebody said to me before I climbed it "you get that big mountain feel."
Wear a helmet, and make sure that everybody else does too.
