Carrick Bend Knot
When joining two ropes the Carrick Bend is easy to both tie and undo. Besides that it's a pretty knot (at least until it's under a load!).
STEPS TO TIE A CARRICK BEND
Take the working ends of both ropes you want to join
Make a loop in one rope
Wrap the second rope around first, passing it under the bitter end
Pass the working end of the first rope under itself in the loop
Ropes and the knots associated with rope, can be dangerous. If improperly handled, or tied, ropes can kill and you could be the victim! Always use rope with care and inspect and test any knots you tie. Respect ropes subject to a heavy load, especially your own climbing rope. The danger associated with ropes under load is often learned by painful experience.
