Do a search on Blakes Hitch....there is a lot of good information here and all over the web that can help you.

What knot do you use? Can you provide a picture of it if you don't know the name?

Clove hitches are not descending knots!


But the closely related Munter is! Pull out one leg of the clove hitch to create a belay/rappell knot that works in both directions.

Never heard of the clove hitch being used for a descender and would recomend avoiding it. The munter has a distinguished history and is a recognized control device. Twists the rope, though.
