Two techniques that most climbers use...

Tramling - attach a quickdraw between your harness and the rope on the non-climber side of the toprope. As the climber is lowered by belayer the quickdraw keeps the climber close to the cliff.As you reach each bolt on the way down you need to unclip the 'tramlining' quickdraw and put it below the quickdraw you want to remove. Most of the time you need to hang onto some holds to do this transfer.

Backjumping - on really steep routes just unclip the anchor and backjump to the previous bolt. Repeat all the way down the route. At the last bolt either downclimb to the ground or rethread the bottom bolt and lower-off.
