CMC Fundamentals: Learn Your Knots - Poacher's Knot
In this video, CMC shows how to tie a Poacher’s Knot. Essentially a loop made by tying half of a Double Fisherman’s Bend, the Poacher’s knot is a very compact knot that pulls tight and grips the object it is tied to. CMC uses it to connect the end of a mechanical advantage system to the becket on a pulley or to connect an escape line to a carabiner hook. (We learned it as Scaffold Knot but found later, Poacher’s was the correct name. The Scaffold Knot has three wraps).
