Example text

When I began to COPE with the clove hitch and the occasional use of a sling, I felt more secure, I was always in a better position to observe the second climber, and my photos were less indicative of my lack of knowledge. CHAPTER 6 Using the Rope to Belay When belaying, climbers either coordinate the rope with some sort of belay/rappel device and a locking carabiner, or they rely on a belay hitch (the Munter hitch) and a locking carabiner. This pattern is entirely appropriate, so there are a number of knots that all belayers need to learn in order to perform belay tasks completely.

The Classic Friction Hitch: The Prusik We’d be remiss not to mention the Prusik, but its ideal applications involve rescue/assistance procedures that are both rare and difficult to describe in this text. However, there are clearly instances where the Prusik survives the application heuristic ahead of its peers. In an ascension system, in a haul system, in a belay escape, and in a load transfer, a Prusik grips the rope tightly and predictably. In some tests the Prusik grips the rope so tightly that high loads actually strip the sheath off of the rope.

The clove hitch is best used on an HMS or a pear-shaped carabiner. The Clove Hitch Strength: The clove hitch is a slippery hitch, and it can behave erratically at high loads, when the rope is wet, or when interacting with different carabiners. It might be helpful to imagine the clove hitch as having the potential to slip at 1,000 pounds. Actual strength can be quite variable, so low loads (like a climber’s body weight) are most appropriate for the clove hitch. Visual clarity: The clove hitch’s capturing strand is easily recognizable.
