@HowNOT2 Canyoning Guided Rappel - How Much Force does it Create?


"Is it safe to have 2 people on a guided rappel? How much force does it create? Brent Roth (@whitewaterpirate) and Joe Cruikshank demonstrate a guided rappel and I read off the force from the LineScale 2. We now have the LineScale 3 and it records the data internally and is water proof. Check that out at

At the top anchor, the peak force was 4.8kn when they were both on it and when repeated, the bottom anchor saw a peak force of 5.07kn. For reference, an 8mm static rope we just tested broke at 14kn in a figure 8." - @HowNOT2
