    Prusik Loop

    How do you make the loop (which knot) ? I understand the prusik but what knot do you use to make the loop that you will prusik on a ridge line or guy line?

    Figure-8 bend, this is an alternative to double fisherman for binding two ropes.
    I'm not asleep... but that doesn't mean I'm awake.

    Have you seen Opie's thread on the Soft Shackle Prusik? Much more versatile.

    Or you could splice a continuous loop for a very clean look.
    Hammocking, car camping, backpacking, kayaking, and mountain biking. Getting in touch with nature is getting expensive. Good thing I can DIY!

    Triple fisherman's for slippery line (like Amsteel or other Dyneema based lines), double fisherman's for easily-knotted line (like paracord or mason's line) to make loops for Prusiks and suspension attachments.

    Pull 'em as tight as you can before cutting the tail ends (with load-bearing ones, I get in the hammock first, just to be sure that the knots are good and tight) to prevent pull-through, especially with the more slippery lines.

    Hope it helps!
