Would a top belay (or just straight lower) be more suitable then a bottom/firemans belay given the very short distance/time between the edge transition and the ledge ?

Any other factors which would have put the beginner at higher risk of inverting ? ie high center of gravity in some overweight climbers ?

What was the rappel system being used ? Was there a rappel extension/friction hitch below device (which can make akward edge transitions harder ?).

Thanks for your post, sounds pretty spooky.
