Topic - Single rope abseiling

Lumbering Oaf - on 02 Aug 2013
Hello,

In France last week I watched a guy ab using a single rope (not doubled over) and a 'knot' that was placed at the bolts. The 'knot' held his weight during the ab but came undone - very neatly - when given a sharp tug after he'd finished his abseil. In this way he would have been able to ab for distances of greater than 25 m using just one 50 m rope.

Does anyone know of a 'knot' that can be used to do this?

Watching this guy ab peaked my curiosity.

Cheers
