The method isn't commonly used as far as I know, and I don't know of it making it into any books yet.

About 9 years ago, a local guide showed it to me during a day of training. Haven't seen it in use since though maybe it is more common amongst SAR folks? I can imagine them having quite a bit more occasion to use an open stretch of cord.

The video is helpful although the guide did not suggest closing the loop at the time. I wonder if the reason for tying the ends together relates to anchoring using the shelf (something I haven't found really necessary anyways and very rarely do).

Likewise, I haven't seen anyone actually using the technique (i.e., untied ends). But seems okay. I find myself frequently tying knots without backing up the tails - situation dependent.
