Show Description

If you regularly entrust your life to ropes on sheer rock faces, or just want to know how to join two ropes together, here’s your book. It includes 40 practical knots with step-by-step directions, photos, and reasons why you’d use them. Knots are organized by activity: hiking and camping, climbing, or kayaking and canoeing. But what makes this more than just a knot book is the section on ropes, cordage, and webbing. Learn how ropes are made, handling techniques (including how to avoid tangles), and care and maintenance.
