Ask Cavers: Do you Use a Rappel Backup Device?
Caving News reader Lois wrote in with a question for her fellow cavers:
I’d like to know how many cavers use a rappel backup device (shunt, stop, etc.), and which is most popular. I am dubious about adding more equipment to my system, as I favor simplicity. But I can also see a good reason to have it. Thanks!
So, vertical cavers out there, let’s help her out. Share your experiences with rappel backup devices in the comments section below.
