WHEN TIEING INTO HARNESS I USE A BOWLINE...

Posted on

WHEN TIEING INTO HARNESS I USE A BOWLINE KNOT WITH A YOSEMITE LOCK WITH A SLIGHT VARIATION. BEFORE PUTTING THE TAIL THRU THE FIRST LOOP I WRAP IT AROUND THE HARNESS LOOP THEN UP THRU THE FIRST LOOP FINISHING WITH A DOUBLE SQARE KNOT. THIS IS FAST AND SECURE. IS THERE ANOTHER KNOT AS SECURE?

Most people use a follow-through figure eight knot with a hitch as a backup.
