Climbing and Rigging

Slip Knot

You can tie this knot even with one hand! In addition to being very easy to tie, experienced climbers find many used for this directional knot. This knot is asymmetric, and it will slip if pulled from the part of the rope used to create the bight (in this instance, the working end). Keep in mind that this directional dependence is important in some applications of this knot.
