Wild Country and Climbing Magazine have produced a series of 'How To' videos designed to demonstrate basic climbing skills and techniques. In this video Julie Ellison, Climbing Magazine Gear Editor, shows which knots are best for rappelling. Julie shows how to tie an overhand knot to link her ropes for abseiling and then shows a 'triple barrel' knot to act as a stopper knot meaning you can't abseil off the end of the rope.
Julie is wearing a selection of Wild Country gear whilst making these videos and you can check out her gear here including: the 360 helmet bit.ly/YQJDmN the Vision women's harness bit.ly/12rzKQH as well as the Ion screwgate bit.ly/13lHKl2.
