Clove hitch on bight was created by rocknroll
Just wanted to know somw of the vets thought of this knot, I have not tried it for climbing (I will) for using as a asending knot. I tied this knot and dressed and set it and it looked so nice and smooth so I put it on my knot tying practice rope. I will post a link, scroll down for the knot. The top of this page is kind of funny to please look it over.

The clove hitch or clove on a bight may be fine for playing games I wouldn't like to see it used as an ascending knot.

The hitch would tend to roll everytime you set it.

There are many proven hitches to use, what is the purpose of trying to make some other hitch work?

Strong limbs and single ropes!

It's always good to try new things and see if you can come up with something BETTER than what's out there;)

True, but it seems like starting with a clove hitch is a little shakey~~~A tautline is a clove hitch with more round turns.

Tom, do you wanna take this outside? As in, hang a rope from the tree and try it out!!! :D

You're right though, I shy away from variations from the tautline (minus the distel).

nick, the feisty one
