Alpine Butterfly Loop | How to tie the Alpine Butterfly Loop | Climbing Knots
Alpine Butterfly Loop (Lineman's Loop) Details
Features: What is now known as the Alpine Butterfly Loop was described twice by Ashley: Lineman's Loop (ABOK # 1053, p 191); and Harness Loop (ABOK # 532, p 87). It provides a secure loop in the middle of a piece of rope. Load can be safely applied: from the loop to either end of the rope; between the two ends with the loop hanging free; or to the loop with the load spread between the two ends.

Uses: It is useful anytime a secure loop is required in the middle of a rope. A good example is when a line of hikers wish to hook on along the length of a shared rope or as a possible option for the first part of a Trucker's Hitch.

Tying it: There are several methods for tying it. We devised the method that is used in the animation. It is an improvement on other "hand-winding" methods. It helps locate the loop: the second crossing of your hand is near your fingertips and away from the other two turns. This helps you to locate it, pick it up, and wrap it around the other two strands. Setting the knot usually requires holding the loop in your teeth and pulling both ends with your hands.

Advantages: It is more stable than either the Bowline on a Bight or the Figure 8 Loop - both of which may roll over. Even after a heavy load, the Alpine Butterfly Loop remains reasonably easy to undo. In addition, it teaches the technique for tying the Alpine Butterfly Bend. This familiarity is one of the reasons that we prefer the Alpine Butterfly Bend over the other similar bends such as the Zeppelin, the Hunter's, and the Ashley.

Blindfold Games
Blindfolds Tent

Blindfolds tent is great for developing communication. We also use blindfold tent as a point scoring project as part of a multi project activity.

Works well with groups of around 4 people, for larger groups use more tents.

Best to use a simple tent. Give the team plenty of time to familiarise themselves with the tent including putting it up once or twice. Then run a timed attempt, the start point being the tent in the bag.

The blindfolds bit comes in because only team members wearing blindfolds can touch the tent. Sighted team members can only direct others typically working 1:1 with the team members wearing blindfolds.

Blind Square

This one is all about problem solving, communication and teamwork.

Use a rope about 20m long with the ends joined to make a large loop. Blindfolds for each person. Work on an open grassed lawn with no obstacles / slopes.

Ask everyone to wear blindfolds then give the rope to one of the team members. Ask the team to put the rope on the ground in shape of the largest square possible. The team must wear blindfolds throughout.

Time should be about 30 minutes.

Team size should be about 4-10.
