Rapping....

I generally see people screw this up.  Or at the very last seem a bit confused on how to rig it.  I rig mine below the rap device.   I also use and carry a PP except that it is pre rigged with a dbl fisherman's.
Good comments worth reading as well.  The trick as mentioned in video is "try before you fly".

I started using rappel back ups on skinny ropes in the winter due to my big butt being too heavy for my grip and on skinny icy ropes. I prefer below the device as opposed to above. I've also found that the GRB is an easier knot to manipulate than the prussik for this particular task.
