This makes sense although I recently read fugetaboutit, just hightail it for a car or building as fast as you can.

Don't forget to put a marker down in case the ball get blown away.

How long do you think you could maintain that position? I figure about a millisecond as I'm passing through it on the way down.

I'm skeptical of that shrub he tied it to.

If you're going to carry that much webbing, why not just carry a nylon web ladder? There're plenty on the market.

A lowering line is more practical. First lower your gear; then, climb (or body rappel) down yourself.

That way your line has to be twice as long as the drop in order to retrieve it, doesn't it?
This way the ladder will plummet with you when that twig rips out of the bank.

Making a ladder, the line has to be twice as long to make the loops and you don't have a line release either.

With a lowering line, you get twice the distance for the same weight; also, an equal length of lightweight 550 cord (makes the weight cut) can be carried for attachment to the release end of the line to retrieve it.

I've done this as an exercise and it's harder than it looks. Though, wetting my pants before going overboard from a sinking ship would probably be pretty easy.

At my high school, everyone had to bring an old pair of pants to gym class one day to do that in the pool.

What, wet your pants?
Seriously though, that was a training drill?
