Single or double wrap for basal anchor?


Well-Known Member
When available I often basal anchor on small trees nearby, then I do 1 or 2 half hitches finished with a backed Running Bowline or something equally secure.

Extreme example but yes securely rooted understory white oak, always test your anchor before ascent ;-)


In this case the weight of a 200' line set high on a thick Live Oak limb won't let the line slack more than a few inches with no climber weight involved.
