The west flank is very lose - route finding is ok, but don't expect to get down fast
I don't think taking a rope will be much use on the way down, but it might be worth taking a light 20m just incase
Yes, I'd agree with the above comments. It's just slabby with loose, that's all.

I really enjoyed it - not difficult, great location (including a beautiful natural amphitheatre) and stunning views from the top. If you wanted to be ultra safe I'd probably take a short scrambling rope for the way down as there were a couple of spots where I was grateful for the fixed rope and would have found it a whole lot less enjoyable if they weren't there and I'd not had a short rope as back up.
