The Alpine Coil is a method used by climbers for carrying a rope, such that the rope remains attached to harnesses and ready for use. It is also known as a mountaineer’s coil.
To Tie an Alpine Coil:
|To carry a coil over your shoulder, bring both ends to the top of the newly made coil and form a bight in one of them.|
|Wrap the other end as shown and tuck it through the bight first formed.|
|Pull on the bight to close it and so trap the end.|
