Golden Rope Solution

Climb up one of the ropes, then cut off both ropes near (not at) the top, but don't let them fall. (Support yourself on the short pieces of rope that remain attached to the ceiling. Some sort of clamp and a harness would probably be handy.) Tie the two short pieces together, forming a small loop, and tie the long ropes together through the loop. Climb down both long ropes together, then pull them down through the loop.
