CMC Fundamentals: Learn Your Knots - Prusik Hitch
In this video, CMC shows how to tie a Prusik Hitch. The Prusik Hitch is the preferred gripping or friction knot. It is easy to remember how to tie, is compact, and grips the rope when pulled in either direction. Tie by placing a loop near the rope then passing the sewn or tied end around the rope and through the loop. Dress the cords from the center out to the bridge on the outside. To release, start by pushing on the bridge to loosen the hitch.
If you have any questions about knots, equipment, or education, please email the CMC Instructors at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the CMC School page for class schedules.
