ABSEILING HISTORY

The origin of the abseil is attributed toJean Estéril Charlet, a 1840-1925. Charlet originally devised the technique of the abseil (or rappel) method of roping down during a failed solo attempt ofPetit Dru in 1876. After many attempts, some of them solo, he managed to summit the Petit Dru in 1879 in the company of two other Chamonix guides, Prosper Payot and Frédéric Folliguet, whom he hired (a rather paradoxical move for a guide). During that ascent, Charlet perfected the abseil.
