Ollybean Do my eyes deceive me or does step 3 show the running end on the wrong side of standing part ? 24-08-12
Trees- it is important that when doing the 2 loops through the carabiner, they wrap in the opposite direction to the spine. This loads the weight into the spine, not into the gate. 24-02-12
Sully I use this knot on my climbing line. It is solid, and never moves. It is also really quick to tie. 01-07-11
