to tie a
Clove Hitch the Square Knot is often considered
a poor knot. For many purposes (for example:
joining two ropes, tying shoe laces) I agree.
However I do find the square knot is an
excellent knot for tying a lead rope to a rope
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 SQUARE KNOT

Make a bight in one rope
