/ Funky knot
Funky knot for an abseil. Why so complicated?
Can anyone offer an explaination for this knot?
Ok, I think I see it's just a tied off munter hitch for lowering someone.
It's just a releasable abseil. If the client abseiling gets stuck you can lower them off the hitch... as long as you have enough rope or a safety line.
Cheers, that makes sense.
