AAC Know the Ropes – Rappelling

By American Alpine Club | February 18th, 2018

See video for more detailed instructions and descriptions about rappelling, but some basic things to always remember are:

  1. Make sure you are secured to the anchor while rigging your rappel.
  2. Use a backup, such as an autoblock.
  3. Always tie knots in the ends of your rope.
  4. Make sure long hair or loose clothing is managed well to avoid entanglements.
