Topic - Ashley's stopper knot - thoughts?

needvert on 23 Feb 2014

Generally I use double overhands, though yesterday I thought I'd see how this knot went jamming in an ATC - didn't budge or roll under body weight.

Never actually seen anyone use it, or a climbing book suggest it, but it seems fit for purpose (easier to untie, and bulkier than a double overhand, and presumably doesn't roll if Ashely suggests it(?)).
