Leading The Way - On The Multi Pitch Abseil Descent

Is the anchor secure? Have I threaded the ropes correctly? Attached my belay plate correctly? Prussik? Where is the next anchor? Does the rope rub over sharp rock? Is there loose rock to avoid? Where are the ends of the rope? These and many more questions form the complex basis of a safe multi pitch abseil descent. No picnic!
