Introduction


Abseiling is one of the most frequent manoevers used in climbing. From a technical point of view, however, it is also one of the most dangerous. Errors committed by the climbers themselves often increase the risks unnecessarily.

The following article is a step-by-step analysis of what two climbers should do when abseiling using two ropes. To simplify matters this article does not consider setting up the belay.
