After climbing Angels Gate walk downhill straight toward the Angels Gate/Wotan saddle. You'll find a cairn on the rim that marks a single bolt that can be used to rappel. It's 100' rappel to a ledge half way down the cliff. From there scramble NWish to a dead but solid tree for another 100' rappel to the ground(there are boulders and cracks around if the tree doesn't give you warm fuzzies). It's probably possible to do one big 200' rappel straight down off the single bolt but hopefully you aren't hauling that much rope around. We did a few more rappels off trees over the lower supai cliff bands. Atleast one of which was another 100' rappel.
