BOOK SUMMARY
Second expanded and revised edition of a manual that explains this popular rope descent technique, perhaps the best known of all mountaineering techniques. Although born in the mountains, she is currently employed in numerous outdoor and professional activities, such as caving, canyoning, raids, recreational and recreational activities, monitoring of rupicolous birds, vertical work or in places of difficult access, military maneuvers, rescue interventions in different media, restoration, and any other where a means of vertical descent that is quick and easy to use is required.

When rappelling, where, from what and how we hang the rope are the most important questions, which will differentiate a rope descent from a flight without wings.

The installation and assembly of rappels are described in this manual, without going into details about specific materials or descent techniques. We will review the different types of anchors commonly used: from fixed installations in equipped climbing areas to those that we will have to place ourselves with caution and common sense in adventure terrain. Some situations and the resources to solve them are also exposed, in which an adequate abseiling assembly offers the solution.

The risk is something inherent in the mountain … Let’s set up good anchors for rappelling!
