Confident Outdoor Climber Series - Knots


Wednesday, October 21, 2020
6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Allendale Campus
Faculty, Staff, Students


This workshop moves beyond the figure-eight to introduce 8 additional knots that are commonly used throughout the Confident Outdoor Climber workshops.  While there are a multitude of resources available online for learning various climbing knots, our experienced instructors offer a few things the online tutorials do not:

  1. Confirmation that you are tying the knots correctly
  2. Guidance on when & how to apply the knots in climbing applications
  3. Guidance on which knots need to be backed-up & how to do so properly
