    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.

    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!
