A little definition:
A Prussik knot is tied onto another larger rope and can be slid up and down the rope.
When the 'tail' is pulled, it will attach itself to the rope.
Pairs of these can be used to climb up ropes easily.
Step 1: What You Need - Skill and a Rope
Paracord - The one pictured below is metres, but this changes depending on your belly circumference.
Karabiner - Optional, good for holding the end of the rope, and tying the prussik around
How to make a prussik - Next step.
Step 2: Tying the Prussik
. Pick up the centre bit, and fold it over (Pictures & )
. Feed the rest of the cord through this (Picture )
It will pay to practice this a bit, until you can do it easily.
Step 3: Make It Resemble a Belt!
This is how much the knot can be adjusted - just like the amount of holes on a normal belt...
Step 4: Bring the Two Together!
Feed the loop (on one end) through the prussik (at the other)
Ta-Da! one nice, new belt. if it isn't big enough, try making the loop a bit smaller, to free up some rope. If this doesn't work, you'll have to get a longer piece of rope. Or lose some weight. Your choice.
Step 5: Finished!!
