Simul rappel without the simul danger 27-May-2014 At 10:41:56 AM ironcheff
Message
I like the idea of the time saving that can be made with simul rappelling, especially if youíre running out of light. Iíve never been game to do it though due to the added risk. I thought of this system that takes the added risk out of the equation and looking for some feedback.
Thread the anchors as per normal. Either side of the anchors tie an alpine hitch, one in each strand, connect the 2 hitches together with a locking biner. Both strands can now be weighted and rappelled independent of the other.
Itís practicality is limited to parties of 3 or more people with the last person down removing the alpine hitches and rappelling on double ropes as per normal.
