Here are three more for you in the free ibooks series. Right now only available on the ipad or itunes store. Will migrate them over to Android devices and iphone shortly. These books have embedded videos on how to construct these knots plus a little of the pro's and con's.

The Munter Hitch: Really a must know for every climber or every wannabe climber. The alternative belay or rappel hitch. Of course Munter never invented this nor did the Italians. This includes the munter mule.

Tape/Water Knot: gotta join two pieces of webbing together here is how I recommend it.

Flat Overhand bend/Euro Death Knot: My choice for joining two ropes for rappel.

Course you combine this with the other six knots we covered and you have a pretty good base of knots that you need to know.

The others were
Prusik
Klemheist
French Prusik
Re-tye figure 8
clove hitch
Fisherman's knot

For the guys there is more Bow Valley eye Candy
