There are times when it makes sense to rig the tail of the rope to the anchor and toss or take the bulk of the rope to the bottom. Is it still possible to rig for contingencies?

  1. When people insist on Rigging like this, a rescue back up rope is invaluable. Rich shows some great ways to convert to a raise but it could be a long raise with a ton of friction over the edge. I would hate to have raise someone all the way to the top just because they got their gear stuck.
