studebaker hoch: UNAUTHORIZED FINGERBeen 30 years for me, but I still remember that when rappelling down a building, keep your legs together in case you go through a divided window. Prolly forgot everything else.Normal rappelling style on a vertical wall is to just walk backwards as you let rope through your rappel device. I haven't rappelled over windows, but my guess would be to "walk" on the frames and keep your feet kinda high so they don't push hard.That weird "bounding" on rappell you see in movies is only done to clear obstacles in real life, and then it's usually just one jump and then a return to walking backwards while carefully controlling the rope./ I would be rapelling very fast.
kcoombs69: danielscissorhands: Wow!Too bad the video ended a bit early. That was awesome!I would have liked to see them bolt the thing on as well.I did notice around the 5 minute mark there's a flag that comes into frame along the bottom that's standing straight out. I wonder how close to "too windy" it was for them to still go ahead with the lift.
