to tie a
joining two ropes I find 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!).
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.
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
