Was down at the climbing wall a few days ago when a debate broke out about the use of a stopper knot;
I regularly climb with just a figure of eight and only use a stopper knot if I need to tidy away excess rope.
One of the people i climbed with argued that it was integral to safety on the off chance of rope slip.
Are there any cases of fig eight knots failing when tied properly with a couple of inches of tail, Iíve been googling to try and find dmm pull or drop tests but havenít come across any that covers this.
