The standard definition of a knot is a rope intertwined with itself, a bend is the intertwining of two ends of rope and a hitch is a knot that is dependent on a host object. In the true spirit of the art of knot craft, we felt like defining knots deserves a little more credit than just "intertwined rope". There is where Knots, Bends & Hitches was born.
This particular course will be something of an evolutionary process in that we'll be constantly changing, managing, and altering the content to incorporate different aspects of knots, bends, and hitches. You learn concepts related to canyons, cliffs, and structures, but who knows what other elements we'll add to this course. Yes, they all require knots, hitches, and bends for connections, but there are so many ways to approach this topic, it's one we can have a ton of fun with. So, stay tuned for any additions to the content and enjoy!
