Ropework is an integral part of canyoning safely.
There are a range of knots and hitches that are vital for common tasks such as joining ropes, building anchors, belaying and ascending. Others allow more advanced rigging, such as releasable anchors, hauling, and lowering.
Learning and practicing knot tying helps cement them in your memory, ensuring they can be quickly, safely, and reliably tied, even if you are cold, tired, or in a stressful emergency situation.
This kit is simply two lengths of 8mm cord in contrasting colours that can be used to practice knot tying. Because it is compact and lightweight, you can keep it with you and practice whenever convenient.
I’ve been using mine for several years, keeping it in my work bag so I can play with knots during down time. It also means I always have some short lengths of rope to practice new knots when I discover them.
For a limited time we are giving away a free knot tying kit with each copy of Grant Prattley’s Canyoning Technical Manual, which is an essential guide for canyoners looking to expand their ropework and rescue skills.
