Prusik Knot, Basic Knot

The Prusik knot was invented by Dr. Karl Prusik, and the Prusik Knot is useful in everyday climbing and search and rescue operations. The Prusik knot is one of a family of knots which are designed to slide along a rope when the body of the knot is held but will grip when loaded through its sling. Prusik Knots are still very useful in emergency situations for replacing a damaged or lost ascender or for temporarily tying off a rope. The knot grips best if you use a smaller diameter rope on a larger-diameter rope.
