ropecraft: hasty rappelling harness


An important skill to know is how to tie a hasty rappelling harness.

This dude calls the securing knot a “tape knot”, also known as is the “water knot“, which I showed you here previously.

As crazy as it may sound, and I DO NOT recommend you self-instruct this way, I learned how to rappel using this harness, a carabiner  and a length of anchor rope from a boat when I was a stupid and “invincible” teenager.
