    Figure of Eight / Stopper Knot

    Filed under: Troop Nights;

    Just a quick recap on how to tie the two climbing knots from last weeks scout meeting.

    Figure of Eight: http://www.2020site.org/knots/figureofeightknot.html

    1. Cross the end of the rope over the top of the remaining rope making a q shape.
    2. Pinch the top of the loop and twist it away from the tail of your q.
    3. Pull the end of the rope or the tail of the q up through the upper loop from behind.
    4. Pull both ends of the rope to tighten forming a figure eight.

    Stopper Knot: http://www.indoorclimbing.com/Stopper_Knot.html

    1. Start the knot by making a loop, and wrap the short end of the rope around itself twice.
    2. Send the short end through the knot.
    3. Tighten the stopper knot evenly.
    4. Secure the end of any other knot using a stopper knot.
