Don't ask me what the application is...but the idea popped into my head "What if I have to haul my partner back up the rappel ropes before we touch down!?" It's late...I can't sleep. I tried to work it out with my gear on the living room floor...but I'm too tired to figure it out straight.

I'm figuring on two rappel ropes. Lets say the one rappeler is unconcious and locked off with an autoblock.

You also happen to have any and all gear you own.

Let's make sure I have this straight before I bother thinking about it:

Climber 1 is unconscious, suspended in mid-rappel, secured by his back-up friction hitch (type is totally irrelevant. hell, it could even be a petzl shunt). anyway, Climber 2 is the rescuer, in mid-rappel on a separate rope carrying the rack. Climber 2 is supposed to rescue Climber 1.

Are the climbers on single-line or double-line rappels? Also, what is the proximity of climber 1 to climber 2 and the respective ropes of the climbers?

edited for grammar.
