Calling all Knotty Boyz & Girlz !!!   

Topics covered include:

• Ropes, a brief history of climbing ropes, including a look at the core of a modern climbing rope

• Coiling, including various methods taught by the CMC

• Uses for knots, including why we tie the ones we do in a given situation

• Webbing, and how to tie knots with webbing

• Cord, and how to tie knots with smaller diameter cord, and when to use it

• Basic knots, common to all climbing situations

• Intermediate level knots, specific to BMS, HAMS, and Tech Section Rock Climbing Schools

• Care for ropes

Students will first master several basic knots, and then have the opportunity to learn various knots of their choosing with instructors who specialize in those knots. 

All students will receive a copy of the textbook for the course: The Outdoor Knots Book (Mountaineers Outdoor Basics) by Clyde Soles, a $14.95 value.

Students will also receive an 8’ section of used 11mm practice rope, a 6’ section of brand new 5mm cord for a prussik, and a 6’ section of brand new 1” webbing for a runner. Students will also receive a discount coupon from a local mountaineering store.
