I was only investigating the rope issue on rocks, as I think it would grab better, and I have lots of shorter length ropes that could be used. Knots on rope are easier to untie. If so which knot would you use around a large rock.?

No complicated knots required.
- Put rope around boulder.
- Tie fig-8 on a bight on one end.
- Pull other end through.
- Cinch tight.
- Tie a second fig-8 on a bight.

There's your anchor.



Make sense?

No need to over-complicate things.

GO
