Almost FREE Knots, Bends & Hitches Workshop!!

Canyoneering Knots, Bends & Hitches!

We'll not only learn how to make them, but we'll learn the difference between them and what each of them are best used for! 

We'll make our own Prusik Loops to take home!
We'll make our own 2-Length Tethers to take home!
We'll make our own Foot Loops to take home!

And, we'll cover the following:

  • Knots: Overhand, Overhand on a bight, Overhand Follow-Through, Dougle Overhand (Stopper), Figure 8, Figure 8 on a bight, Figure 8 follow-through, Alpine Butterfly
  • Bends: EDK, Double Fisherman, Figure 8 follow-through, Square Fisherman, Ring Bend (webbing)
  • Hitches: Girth, Clove, Munter, Prusik, Modified Hedon

This workshop will be held at Griffith Park; exact location will be provided to participants; please bring a headlamp.

  • I will provide 7' of 7mm accessory cord or cordalette for your double-length tether
  • I will provide 10' of 9/16 webbing for your foot loop
  • I will provide 4' of 6mm accessory cord for your Prusik

PLEASE READ THIS!! I say this workshop is 'almost' free because the $20 covers the costs of the tools you'll be taking home with you!! Charging a fee for this FREE workshop should also prevent people from signing up who have no intention of attending (you know who you are). You may bring $20 to the event or you may pay the $20 in advance via Paypal to: [masked].  If you don't have Paypal, you must confirm to me that you are guaranteed to attend and you that you will bring cash to the event. If you cancel or are a no-show after your commitment to me, REGARDLESS OF THE REASON, you may not be allowed to RSVP to future events, or you might be removed from the meetup group entirely. Even if you bring your own materials, you must pay the $20 fee.

    Very informative and it was great to practice them hands on and to be able to ask for help or explanations. Would definitely recommend this to all my friends that are interested! Thanks Klaus!

    I might have a friend who would also like to join us, would that be ok? I've asked her to try and sign up on meetup so you will have a better idea of final head count :)

    In the future can this workshop please be on a day different from Thursday? I have been interested in attending for the past several months, but unfortunately for me I work late on Thursday evenings.
