Sample text

Whichever device type is chosen, every canyoneer should know how to rig their device to rappel on both single and double strands of rope, how to add or remove friction and how to lock it off. RAPPEL RING When rope is pulled through webbing it can quickly damage the webbing as well as generate additional friction, which creates a harder pull. For this reason, rope is threaded through a rappel ring placed on the webbing. Rappel rings are typically rolled aluminum; however, solid aluminum and stainless steel rings are also avail­ able.

Trees are found in many Arizona canyons and can provide excellent rappel anchors. A simple push/pull test can be performed to determine whether the roots are solidly anchored. To prevent damage to the bark of the tree as a result of pull­ ing rope, it's best to use webbing around the tree rather than pass the rope around the tree directly. Ropes placed around a tree will strip the bark when the rope is pulled, eventually girdling the tree and killing it. When evaluating trees for use as anchors a live tree is better than a dead one.
