A friend of mine has a spool that we're itching to use before it gets cut, so we're planning on rappelling the Angel Cove base jump and End of Hidden. Anyone have information on these routes, esp recently? Is the log/stump still at End of Hidden? Google Earth shows elevation options at Angel's Cove to range from ~500-650' depending on anchor locations, but there is an unfortunate local aberration. Can anyone confirm the length and slope? I want to make sure we're prepared to do it as safely as possible, even if something goes wrong. Can you help me refine my list of gear and skills needed? Here it is so far. Gear Bunny strap Radios, whistle Chest harness Escape line Extended Critr Rope, pull cord, webbing, rapides, helmet, harness, gloves, the usual. Pulley Monocular Safety (distal hitch) Knife and pliers Fresh accessory prusik cords. Grippy, aramid sheath, pEster core. Biners Bolt kit (emergency backup) Weather-appropriate clothing (no wetsuit) Skills Hang pack- what are your preferences and why: off front, back. side, or Critr? Anchor building Tie off Critr and restart without jamming Add friction: Critr, (Leg biner/Z-rig friction backup options) Unweight Critr or prusik (one step prusik ascent) Pass knot Transfer to escape line Free hanging efficient rope ascent- double, single, &/or bare bones Fireman belay- & slight tension to reduce spin Signals http://uberadventures.net/post-portfolio/commands-signals/ Test everything with same rope and cord Muscle and nerve Knots Distal hitch for descent safety Prussic for passing knot Bachman for ascent Triple Clove hitch 2x Fish bend for skinny escape rope. Offset overhand 1.5 otherwise. Perfection loop for Prusik ends Any other useful pointers would be appreciated. Thanks.
