Stay in the climbing game long enough and your sure to deal with foul weather. This video deals with a few tips about getting the ends of the rope down when wind is present. This video does not cover rappelling in any great detail as we have done that in more detail on other videos.
Most of the time grabbing a few coils throwing them off to space is enough. As the wind picks up you may actually have to carry the coils down with you. This is not as bad as one might think if done correctly.
