CMC Fundamentals: Learn Your Knots - Tensionless Hitch

By CMC

In this video, CMC shows how to tie a Tensionless Hitch. A very quick anchor that eliminates the knot at the anchor point, if you have enough wraps around a large, not-too-smooth surface. Knot efficiency – 100% (if the diameter of the anchor is at least 4 in (10 cm)).

If you have any questions about knots, equipment, or education, please email the CMC Instructors at askaninstructor@cmcpro.com or visit the CMC School page for class schedules.
