Leaders: Anton J
Standard: Everyone welcome
Meeting: No meeting


This is an extension to the basic knot tying workshop last week, or for anyone who's done some knot work before. 

We will be going through some knots in a seminar style workshop, and going through possible uses and applications. 

Knots that will be looked at:

- Bends (alpine, EDK, figure 8, double-fisherman's)

- Prussik knots (several variants)

- Alpine butterfly loop

- Bunny Ears

-Gardiner Hitch (rope version)

This will equip you to safely and securely join two ropes together, create a progress capture/saftey back-up for your lines, and create a different progress capturing knot to last week. 

After the session I'll be sticking around for the meeting, so you're welcome to bring an rope-related questions, or problems looking for a knot related solution. 

All ropes will be provided. Meeting in the library (where the tea is at!), unless there's too many.

A good website for looking at knots is here: http://www.animatedknots.com/
