The most comon top rope set up when you have two bolts, either parallel o one higher than the other is to pass through some webbing, make a loop and then tie an overhand in the direction of the pull. My question is that if it would be ok to do the following: I have alot of old rope. I would take a 3 or 4 ft peace of old rope and tie double overhands to each extremity for bolt conection and then use a clove hitch with two opposing biners in the direction of the pull. Strength and security wise, would this be ok?

Do you drive on tires with no tread?

Would it be okay, in a pinch, - probably - but I wouldn't use it and I probably wouldn't climb with someone who did.

Figure eight or the overhand would be a better choice in all locations, especially if you're going to use it repeatedly. If you have a lot of old rope, don't be cheap with it.
