In this video, we show you how to set up a rappel extension, how to thread the rope through your rappel device, how to back up the rappel with a friction hitch and how to rappel down the wall.

Waterfall Abseiling at Sungai Pisang | GoPro

Sungai Pisang is situated in the Gombak outskirts near the Selangor/Pahang border - the clearings around the 20m waterfall appear to be popular destinations with campers and the adventurous on weekends. It was a real shame to see some trash along the trail, though.

This was a waterfall abseiling trip organised by MadMonkeyz Climbing Gym. Shot on a 2014 GoPro HERO and a GoPro HERO4 Silver.

What is the best Stopper Knot for Abseiling / Rappelling?

Test of different types of Stopper Knot at the end of a rope.

The knot in the end of the rope is extremely important when climbing. Especially when abseiling. But what is the best Stopper Knot for Abseiling / Rappelling?
I did a few tests with different knots to see how easily they would come loose with rope movements.

It has already happened to me that a simple knot in the end of the rope has come loose. Since then I use only the Barrel Knot. This knot has never come loose.
