Simul rappel without the simul danger 27-May-2014 At 11:27:23 AM peteclimbs
My partner and I will simul rap pretty regularly if the setup allows. I agree that in a lot of cases the benefits can be outweighed by the added faff, particularly getting comfortable and organised at the rap station.

On the perception of the additional danger, the one that probably freaks people out is the idea that if one of you loses control of the rap and plummets to the bottom then you're both toast. Making sure that both of you back up the rappel with a friction hitch (and are comfortable using it) goes a long way to managing that concern. Extending the ATC away from your harness and a prusik on the break hand is my preference and only takes a second to set up.

If you both have gri gris then even better.
