Double Fisherman's Knot:
Despite the uptake of knots like the overhand for tying two ropes together, the doublefisherman's remains the safest way to do this in the climbing environment. It is also theonly knot to use to join ropes of different diameters as it is resistant to the unequalstretching in the ropes that this can induce. 1.Start the Double Fisherman's Knot by tying a double overhand around the firstrope.With the end of the first rope, tie a double overhand around the second rope.Tighten the knots evenly.2.Pull the two ropes so the knots come together. This is the Double Fisherman'sKnot.
