    Thanks for posting this problem!
    Very good Tom Collins.
    If it is easy to judge the distance at which to set the second device, I would preset and lock it off (CRITR2 :D)
    Then do the short rappel on a munter (this works fine double strand if the ropes are supple).
    Saves a device.

    The original supposition that the crack is not down climbable has been proven false, and not just by me, but someone of intermediate skill. It's not easy, so if you aren't certain of your skills, better to go with one of the solutions posted above, but it wasn't super hard either so if you feel confident, just courtesy rig everyone but the last and then hook in normal and DC until you weight the anchor.

    hey hey hey, don't bust my scenario...

    added: (but to be fair, from above it looked awkward and unlikely. When I actually got there, it looked fairly reasonable.)

    Nothing wrong with it as a scenario, its just that you said it was a real life problem (and even told us where it was), not a hypothetical and so I decided to test the claim.

    It was certainly an interesting canyon though, that was my first time through.
