The Siberian Hitch

A great cold weather knot

In cooler weather the Siberian Hitch is a convenient knot because it can easily be tied with gloves on. It’s also a knot that Ray Mears used in his bushcraft television series. It can be released easily and fairly easy to learn. Do not use it for critical loads, as the free tail could become entangled and trigger a release.

Uses: tarp ridge line, clothesline, hanging food.
