two passes of a rope round an object to completely encircle it- end up w/ 2 ends facing same direction
knot in end of rope used to prevent fraying or to prevent the end from passing thru a hole; i.e. figure 8 knot
2 pieces of same sized rope, not completely safe under load; L over R, R over L; both ends end up on top- symmetrical
bunny up thru hole, around tree, back into hole; good for attaching handles or caribiners; standing end is tree; overhand loop 1st
