Learn about commonly used knots in climbing, like Clove Hitch, Alpine Butterfly, Bunnie Ears, and bowline, to name a few and see some different uses.
This workshop will cover fundamental skills for climbing, focusing on working with ropes and the mastery of various knots, hitches, and bends used in climbing. Participants will learn how to tie essential knots such as the figure 8, alpine butterfly, bowline, clove hitch, and more. The workshop will also showcase the different uses for each knot, giving participants a comprehensive understanding of how to use them in a practical setting. It’s important to note that certain knots such as the double bowline should only be attempted by advanced climbers with strong technical skills, as they can be more difficult to inspect and tie incorrectly.
