Team Multi Pitch Abseil Descent Training - North Face of Pointe Lachenal

An exercise in concentration & organisation - A multi pitch abseil descent requires care but gaining the skills involved unlock the potential to climb routes & summits with technical descents as well as giving the re-assurance of having the skills to effect a safe retreat if the route can not be climbed for whatever reason. A strong personal anchor system style Cows Tail (Eg like the Grivel Cows Tail) is a useful tool in this process.
