Brian,

I think we need someone who understands more about the aerodynamics of rockets than me to answer that question. It's not going to be easy as while there are models of the Earth's atmosphere I guess our knowledge of the density profile of Venus's atmosphere is a lot less well known. The ascent would have to be supersonic but then so are ascents from Earth.
