Walking off DAFF Dome

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.
