Rapping on a singled dynamic rope 29-Nov-2015 At 5:53:14 PM stuart h
Rapping on a single 10mm with a standard device should be no issue, unless perhaps it is very steep. If you unexpectedly find you need more friction then running the rope around your leg is a quick fix. If you know you need more friction (or suspect you will) with a plate/tube style device, you can clip two biners in to the rappel. Clip both biners to both the belay loop and the loop of rope through the device and you should enjoy a slower rappel. (On the other hand, if you clip the second biner to the rope but not your belay loop, you will have a faster rappel, so, you know, checking stuff is a good idea when abseiling & so on...)
