That is exactly what I did. Sorry if my description wasn't as concise.

A Prussik is dead simple and very useful.

Your description was fine. It was the beautiful picture which captured my attention and thus I didn't read too carefully.

easy to tie, grips better than a taught line, and can be finished with a slip knot. I use it now for my suspension line (no woopies).
Ooh! I like that one too! Make it slippery and it's a keeper. I'll have to try that when I next setup my tarp.
