I was re-reading an old "tech tip" from a Climbing back issue: The author of the tip was advocating pulling along a static 7mm (yes, SEVEN) tag line (60-65 meters long) to use for full-length raps with the lead line AND to bail-off mid-lead by rapping the thin cord, off your top piece of pro', while being belayed on the lead line through the pro' below, cleaning all but the top piece as you descend. This sounds like a good way to get out of an uncomfortable spot, if you find yourself "in over your head". I started shopping around. Thing is Bluewater sells a 9mm static line--but they don't advocate using it for rappeling. Anyone have experience with this technique? What kind of skinny cord have you used?
