Come on guys. This is clear fuckin spammage.
Just ignore the fucker and let him run out of rope.
Good riddence.

Having said that, this is clearly just a troll.

Before I do any repelling down a route. I make sure that my rope is touching the ground. (I dont usually climb higher than 50m's tho) Usually my belayer or another climber will tell me that its safe to repell.

If you are un-sure of the rope touching the ground and you have to repell down. I usually tie the two ends of the rope together at the bottom so I dont fall off. In the event I mis-judge the repell (which has never happened because A. I read my guide book, which usually has the height of the climb and B. I always make sure I have a safe exit route before thinking about climbing) you can use two pursk cords (always keep them tied up on the same biner as my chalk bag) to climb back up the rope.

I have set up a repell on a climb. repelled down half way and then tie'd all my knots and climbed back up for practise.

I suggest you get an instructor to train you in the knots and how to use, then practise under his supervision indoors before doing any "dodgee" repel's.
