Rigging Part 1


This chapter discusses the ropework that goes between the anchor and the rappel ring or rapide.

In most beginner canyons, all the rigging discussed in this chapter is already in place, and you can skip to Rigging Part 2.

The rigging in this chapter involves joining multiple anchors into a single location where the rope is attached. The type of rigging you use will depend on how your anchors are placed and what you need to do. In caving, you can remove your rigging on the way out; in canyoneering, you can either leave the rigging there for the next group or use special rigging that you can retrieve from the bottom of the rappel.
