    Interesting. I do both for canopy anchors. Depends on my mood and diameter of tie in point. I’ll still trust either one. I use the alpine with a steel biner when I get over 12” diameter. Usually when I’m down to a spar for the ease of adjusting the tail length for blocking down.

    Interesting to see his simple method for tying a running-AB.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    That was pretty slick, the way he tied that butterfly.
    Nice.

    I didn’t want to be the first to say it for fear of sounding like the new guy that I am but I too was impressed with the way he tied the butterfly.
