In Rappelling you'll find everything you need to know about descending a rope, from the most basic to advanced techniques, including knots, rigging strategies, rappel devices, and more. Included is a comprehensive discussion of ropes, slings, and all the hardware used in rappelling. 
 
Rappelling techniques for climbing are covered in detail, including multi-pitch rappelling methods and rope management.
