Figure 8 Knot -
On a bight
The Figure 8 Knot - On a bight, is used in Canyoneering primarily for creating a "load carrying" loop. It is a safe knot to rappel on, to tie yourself into an anchor point, and to lower or raise people and gear.
To tie, simply make a bight on the rope followed by tieing a Figure 8 knot.
You can tie this on ANY part of the rope, not just end.
It is recommended to tie an overhand knot below the Figure 8 on a bight when rappelling from it.
