Day 250: 8-8-8


365/250: 8-8-8, originally uploaded by riekhavoc.

This is a shot of a triple figure-eight knot. It's a bit excessive, but it looked prettier (for photo purposes) than the other knots we learned to tie today. I was at a training on how to climb up and down ropes, using a method known as prussicking. Basically, you're attached by a harness and two ropes to a rope you're climbing, and you inch-worm your way up to the top. I couldn't do all of it. But I got to rappel, which it turns out I love!
