There's one short rap on the descent from Angel Food Wall that can be done to bypass a bit of down-climbing.

Pitch 3 goes up and left past the bolt, follows the crack for a while (solid trad placements), then eventually the next bolt appears up and left

Comments: I agree that the postprocessing is horrible. And the link to the original photo at the Petzl site doesn't work. Sad all around.

Comments: On the final raps from Dark Shadows, a 70m rope just makes it (with rope stretch, using a 70m rope with 9.5% static elongation) from the rap anchor at the top of pitch 2, ending on the gravel bar downstream of the pool. Stationing one person at the downstream edge of the pool and pulling hard from the left should allow the rope to stay dry.
