Here's How To... Rappel

What goes up will eventually come down. But when descending from the top of a wall, a cliff some or other steep grade, a carefully controlled decline is advisable. Most climbing accidents happen on the way down, not on the way up.

Rappelling, the technique of sliding down a rope, allows climbers to make safe descents from precipitous heights, but it can be a hazardous activity.  No text or website can substitute for on-site instruction, but there are some basic concepts that can be learned beforehand.
