So was reviewing some of the knots I used to know and some of the new one's I'll need to know as a hanger. Got me thinking--- Which when I recovered from the pain of brain activity---
Which knots do you use in the wild, and what are they used for?
To start off, The only knots I remember are:
Bowline: Simple but effective loop knot. A thousand different uses and the first knot I learned past tieing my shoes.
Harness Bend: good for joining up ropes with a strong hold. Break in the line quick fix.
Prusik Knot: A friction hold knot. another class favourite and the one I hear the most of from here. when bearing a load it has great strength but when loose moves up and down a line very easy.
Heaving Line Knot: Adds weight to a line. Good for bear bagging, and getting a line over a body of water to help with river crossing.
Any other suggestions on knots to pick up?
