Sample text

Start with a long bight of rope and start to tie an overhand loop, only add another wrap. 2. Tuck the working end through the loop. indd 22 8/30/10 2:38 PM 3. Snug the knot up and try to uncross the strands so that it will be a bit easier to untie. Climbers routinely use this same knot for tying a rope to their harness. In that situation, you simply tie a figure-8 a few feet from the end of the rope, then thread the working end through the harness and retrace the first knot. There is no need to tie a backup knot for a figure-8 loop, though many climbers do out of fear.

Presto chango! You now have a bowline solidly attached to the anchor. indd 33 33 8/30/10 2:38 PM Double Bowline Occasionally you may need a bit more security than a standard bowline, but you don’t want to tie a backup knot. As with the double sheet bend, you can increase the holding power a bit by adding an extra loop to the working part of the knot. 1. Start by making a loop using the wrist twist but without holding the working end. indd 34 8/30/10 2:38 PM 2. Now add an extra loop. Then proceed to let the rabbit run.

Indd 42 8/30/10 2:39 PM Inline Figure-8 There may be times where you have one end of the rope anchored and you need a loop that can be pulled against the anchor. Although the figure-8 and butterfly loops will work, there is a better solution that is also super easy: the inline figure-8. 1. Start by making a bight pointed away from the anchor. 2. Then tie a regular figure-8 loop but only wrap around the line that goes to the anchor. 3. Snug up both the loop and the working end of the rope. indd 43 43 8/30/10 2:39 PM Chapter Four Attaching Knots (Hitches) Girth Hitch The fastest way to attach a loop to a tree, pole, or even another loop is with a girth hitch.
