Thank you both for your replies.

You are right, rgold, the knot used in the picture is in fact a figure eight, not an overhand.

Of course one must bear in mind the potential dangers of the EDK and measures to minimise them.

Backing up the clove hitches by clipping the tails through the carabiners into which they are tied is a good suggestion, I had not thought if it myself. In addition to backing up the system it can make the rigging neater and less cumbersome.

What do you see as the limitations of cordelette resulting from it's specialised nature? Excuse the question, but when you say cordelette, are you referring to the material that the rigging is made from or the system of a pre-tied loop used to form the anchor matrix? (If you could reference a previous forum post I would be happy to read it).

I am interested in how the addition of a third strand might influence the ease at which an EDK might roll. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks
