Rewoven bowline

The rewoven bowline (fig. 6-16) is another excellent knot for tying into a seat harness at the end of the rope. It can be used in place of the rewoven figure-8. If the rewoven portion of the bowline comes untied, you are still tied in with a single bowline.

The girth hitch (fig. 6-20), the overhand slip knot (fig. 6-21), and the clove hitch (fig. 6-22) are simple knots that can be used to tie off partially driven pitons or ice screws.
