Thanks for the edit majid

Does anyone know what caused the rap failure? Did one of them misrig their device or did they not even out the ends and rap off the end? The article says it was a 150-180 meter climb, meaning it was most likely a multiple rappel

I ran in to something in supertopo pointing , may be one was rapping faster than other person or something in that line and if you are doing a simul rap then both people must rap next to one another. Ideally, you want a short sling attack between the two and both people must control the decent very carefully.

IMO, simul rap should be used as last option in a serious life or death situation where both climbers must rap multi pitches to bail out however, when you look at how much time you save vs risk involved, There aren't much gain
