Climbing knots 

Posting this mainly so I don't forget myself. In German, because that's the way I learnt it.

Knots

  • Ankerstich, Prussig, Doppelter Prussig
  • Mastwurf
  • Halbmastwurf
  • Halfmastwurf mit Sicherungsschlag -> "Halbmastwurf is never alone!"
  • Achter
  • Sackstich (Hausfrauenknoten)

Climbing

  • Use eight-knot for securing to lap belt
  • Use Halbmastwurf for belaying when securing a climber, keep end of rope (upwards?)
  • Must be clipped in at the top with two counter-facing carabiners when rappelling
  • When climbing along a rope course, have your two carabiners always clipped into opposite directions

Rappelling

  • Have ready: Two carabiners at the ends of your "tentacles"
  • Eighter metal piece for rappelling
  • Prussig, at the back
  • Using upper body strap, not lower

Misc

  • Connect two ropes by weaving an eighter from both sides, it's the most practical that way
