Helical Hitch in Arboriculture
Uses: The Helical Hitch is a very responsive knot that must be tied correctly. Too loose and it is prone to slip. Too tight and it will bind up. Much like the Valdotain, it takes a certain amount of experimenting to find the perfect spot, and this will also be very much dependant on the cord and climbing line you are using. It is, therefore, more suited to experienced climbers.
Suggested Cordage Size: 10mm on 11-13mm host line.
