Retrievable rigging, also known as “ghosting” is a great skill to have to navigate the desert canyons of the American Southwest. Exploration of undocumented routes, gear loss, gear damage, mitigation of ropes stuck due to poor anchor location and rock groove prevention are just some of the reasons to have these rigging tools in your tool box.
In this workshop, we will cover:

Various known implementations, advantages and disadvantages of each one of them:
* Toggle Sticks

This is an advanced class. Intermediate knot craft and rigging are prerequisites. If you have questions, send a PM.
