The newer method utilizes an Autoblock knot positioned below the rappel device and attached to a leg loop on your harness. To prevent jamming, the length of this backup sys­ tem must be shorter than the distance from your leg loop to your rappel device. A good way to do this is to extend your rappel device above your harness with either a doubled or Girth Hitched sling prior to rappelling. As you rappel, hold the top of the knot with your brake hand. This will allow the Autoblock to slide over the rope.

Hold the free end of the rope and the fixed rope in the same hand. Stand in the loop. 8. Remove the Prusik knot. To so you can either: a. Loosen the Prusik knot, slide it down the rope and load the Autoblock. Next, remove the Prusik knot - this requires the six inch buffer due to "system stretch" . b. Remove th e loaded Prusik while you are standing in the lower Prusik loop or loop of rope. 9. Remove the Figure Eight backup and rappel. Note: This system can also be used to escape a selfbelay device.

You will be forced to leave the Prusik on the rope. This may cause the rope to snag during the lower. When tying the Prusik knot to the rope, the knot that makes a loop of the accessory cord (Double Fisherman 's) should be close to the rope so it does not interfere with the Mariner knot. Before you Girth Hitch cord or webbing through the pro­ truding loop of the Mariner knot, make sure the knot is tied correctly. The Mariner knot should finish by wrap­ ping around itself at least three times before it is threaded between the cord or webbing under tension.
