I'm writing this now because a recent party has re-rigged my ropes in a fashion that makes descent impossible
I know someone who leaves caves rigged for projects with the shitty'est ropes he can find. Apparently whilst he is happy to use them others are very much put off. Threats don't really help and can backfire.
Isn’t a reverse prusik an abseil?
Down jumaring any more than the very shortest section is a horrible task.

I've done shortish sections in the very distant past, when some ropes had oil and denso tape goo all over them (not my fault). It reminds you just how aggressive and sheath catching those petzl teeth are. Down jumaring any more than the very shortest section is a horrible task.
