MM Clove hitch made on

a ring

This particular version of the clove hitch is more commonly used in mountaineering than in sailing, for in sailing the ring is usually narrower than the rope, which can become badly chafed and therefore dangerous. 1

Climbers use it to regulate the length of rope between the climber and the piton {that is, the peg or spike driven into rock or a crack to x support the rope). m
