Thaks for your thoughtful comments. I couldn't descend down the other rope because it has the safety Alpine butterflies tied in it every five feet. But I suppose I could use a GriGri on the same rope as the ascender and just below it.

Does your comment mean that you never use an ATC to rappel, but always a GriGri? How does this work with the GriGri 2? Is it posible to manipulate the lever so as to achieve a smooth and safe descent?
