Can I hear some suggestions on what the best choice for a knot would be build an expedient emergency use escape kit? IE. Hook/or caribiner, decender, anchor to harness, single rope. The common 7.5mm 50' kits out there sew a loop in that are perminatly attached, so when the rope or components are compromized, you have to toss the entire kit. To replaced the rope and keep the components (or replace a component) in the chain, what knot would you all best use as the loop to connect the anchor and hook/carabiner?
I was thinking either a tight bowline with a square safty, or perhaps a follow through 8 and saftey? but I cant find my chart that used to show how much reduction in the ropes capacity is compromised?
