To all the critic's: No where in the video does she say this is a mandatory method or the only way to rappel. It is simply an instructional video that is showing a good tip.
Thank you climbing magazine for making a well made instructional video. I hope to see more phone.
Hehe on our website we have a good safety video about abseiling with helmet!
Helmet, helmet, helmet, it is very important. It saved my life twice.
Also, will this extended rappel work if one has to go down over a roof?
An extended rappel is a pretty dummy thing, as -the device being at head instead of chest level- your hair can get trapped inside the device very easily.
Stick to the traditional one... works as fine and has no such danger!
I appreciate the rappel safety, but what about wearing a helmet! it's ridiculous to show serious instruction with nice hairstyle and make up styled instructor without a helmet!!!
