Climbing and Rigging

Cow Hitch

A cow hitch is used for securing hardware to a tree and it is a variation on the girth hitch where it is formed with a line instead of a loop. Did you know that the direction of this half hitch should be against the bight, so that the working end exits back along the direction it entered? Learn some important features about this hitch in this episode of Climbing & Rigging.
