It might bear mentioning that I find the new falcon guide misleading about where the daff rap is. it mentions a rap starting from the tree in the 'north' corner. as far as i can tell, the tree and boulder with bolts in it is found at the E (or SE?) corner of the dome. walk towards lembert dome (or the meadows) from the summit.
the rap goes as two short single rope rappels. a 50m rope will easily suffice.
(there *are* trees in the north corner, but i dont see any anchors and it looks like a committing rap into 4th class or steep ugliness.)
the rap is definitely the way to go if the rock is wet, as the spicy walkoff's path of least resistance generally follows a water run.

|Do the walk off folks, its 3rd class the whole way. No getting lost, not finding the anchors, waiting to rappel from a perfectly good walk-off.. None of that nonsense, just walk toward fairview and wander down the path of least resistance(to the right). The walk off is only wet if there is snow on the summit or it is raining, so very seldom. It is really the best way off because it will bring you back to the base of the west face(halfway down), or directly to the approach trail to the south flank(all the way down). Some people have been scared off by the description in the supertopo, please ignore the scary description,the walk-off is so reasonable guides have been bringing clients down it for years.|
