Tree Climbing Knots

We started our tree climbing knots page as a ‘how to’ guide for our Essential Recreational Tree Climbing climbers. Silent tree climbing knots on video might not sound that thrilling but if you’re a knot geek or a tree climber you’ll love them!

All the videos feature Paul tying some of his most useful tree climbing knots. Knots included are: Bowline, Marlin Spike, Figure Eight, Double Fishermans, Figure Eight on a Bight, Prussick, Scaffold Knot, Barrel Knot, Blake’s Hitch, Clove Hitch, Distel Hitch. If there’s any more knots that you’d like to see, just let us know.

Just click on the knot below for pictures and a how to video. There’s no sound, so please don’t adjust the volume.
