Retrievable rigging, also known as “ghosting” is a great skill to have to navigate the desert canyons of the American Southwest. The ability to rig anchors in a way that does not require to pull the whole length of the rappel pitch through a master point, or pull down ‘fixed lines’ is a great advantage for anchor locations that are far back from the rappel edge, emergency situations and exploration of new routes.

* When to to use Retrievable Rigging

* How to mitigate its inherited risks

* What group dynamics and skills favors this type of rigging

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

* Toggle Sticks
