And make sure you know where the butt of your weapon is. Otherwise you might lose some teeth.

I think some of the people are confusin the two things. Rappellin is fun and goin Ausie is great but, nothin can compare to fast out a helo with nothin but gloves boots and weapon. Saw a couple of guys get hit and some hit hard. Major rush though.

I believe you are talking about rapelling, fast roping is done with a rope and gloves only, you need to be REAL strong to fast rope face down..

But australian rapelling is great fun...
