Rock Climbing: How to Rappel

More accidents happen on rappel than any other part of climbing, so always take your time, make sure your systems are redundant and practice the steps before you head to the cliff. 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.

Rappel Knots

Climbing magazine answers the age-old question of which knot is best used for joining two ropes in a double-rope rappel by showing how to tie the flat overhand, the knot recommended by the AMGA. We also show the triple barrel knot, which can be tied in the end of both ropes to keep you from rappelling off the rope.

Macrame Knot for Rappelling AKA Abseiling

WARNING: this anchoring method is advanced and should only be used by experienced mountaineers.
The Macrame Knot is great to have as an option on straightforward abseils off single anchors. It's use prevents tree damage that standard pull throughs cause. It takes a lot less effort to release this knot than to pull a rope length over an anchor and there is also very little friction to overcome. A further advanced application is that it allows more than two ropes to be tied together and then retrieved. This however requires the abseiler to pass a knot on descent.
It is also possible to use a sling (and optional MR) as an extension around the back of the anchor when there is an obvious risk of the rig getting snagged. The sling might then get snagged on pull down, but the rope would still pull through the sling. Perhaps another video would be useful to show this.

Sea-cliff climbing essentials 3: Abseil, retreat and escape

Do you have the skills to access and escape from a sea cliff? Jay Jackson and Sam Percival show you how at Chair Ladder.

Traditional climbing on sea cliffs is an immensely rewarding and adventurous activity. However, the dynamic nature of the coastal environment presents additional challenges to climbers. Tide and sea conditions can mean that the difficulty of a given route can change from day to day. Rock quality may be variable, fixed equipment unreliable and accessing or escaping from a climb can be significantly more complex than at an inland crag. This series of films aims to raise awareness of some of the skills and techniques required to manage risk in these exciting, yet unforgiving venues. We hope that you will be inspired for your own coastal adventures!

Sea-cliff climbing essentials: a series of short films produced exclusively for BMC TV in association with AMI (the Association of Mountaineering Instructors).
