Topic - yosemite eight

JonJavlin - on 04 May 2012
been thinking about knots lately and the buddy system as we get out and do bigger and better things. We did MFB at the weekend.

this thread got us thinking: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=503455&v=1

so, my mate does the figure of eight with an upward facing stopper. I do the figure of eight with a yosemite finish.

this one (apologies, he is american after all ;): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCbUpul1R6w

seemed like a better system for me. When i did the stopper before, it always came undone.

with the yosemite; at the wall and the crag (and now the mountain), it has always stayed as it should, and also out of the way.

good? bad? indifferent??

cheers
