Bowline, basic
The Bowline holds tight during extreme situations, yet unties with minimal effort. Used mostly in rigging situations this quickly tied and untied knot is perhaps our most important tool! Caution! The Bowline is not recommended for personal support termination because it can unravel under light loads.
