I took part in 2 industrial rescue competitions years back. There was a list of knots and hitches that pleased the folks running the event. One of the knots was a double in-line 8, and i struggled with it for a long time and although i learned it then i never mastered it because i can't tie it today(just did,t use it enough). I have searched many times for this knot. Just for old times sake i would like to work with it again.
One of the events had the Munter Hitch as a theme (if you will), any other belay technique was taboo. We had never used the Munter before, and used it very seldom in training after. But it was a slick belay. They gave out belt buckles and I still wear it today.
