Attaching Bark Protectors

You will need to put a leather bark protector on the rope where the rope passes over the limb if you are going to be climbing on a double rope. Put the end of the rope through the sleeve and pull a length of rope through it approximately equal to the distance to the limb. Tie a slip knot in the rope just below the sleeve and, using the other end of the rope, pull the sleeve up until it is on the limb. Pull down on both ends of the rope and the slip knot should come untied and leave you ready to tie your climbing knots and ascend.
