ADDING FRICTION TO YOUR RAPPEL:
Ropes are getting skinnier, meaning there is less friction in our rappel devices when rappelling. This is very true when rappelling a single line with a skinny rope such as when using a tag line. Utilizing a carabiner in the eyelet of the plaquette style device and clipping it to the belay loop or extension loop increases the angle of the device, creating a sharper bend and greater friction. Be sure the carabiner is the right size. Too big and you get no benefit. Too small and the plaquette goes into ratchet mode.
NOTE: I will be away from service and internet for the next 3 days jamming and locking some incredible desert splitters here in Indian Creek! I will get to questions ASAP! Apologies in advance for the delay.
An alien world lies in the depths of the Earth, and it’s enigmatic and fascinating at the same time. Swipe for pictures of the journey!
