The Blakes Hitch, what is it used for?

The Blakes hitch is often used by tree climbers and arborists in a variety of climbing systems. It can be used in both SRT (single rope) and DRT (double rope) applications.


The Blakes hitch is often combined with a micro pulley to advance the hitch up the climbing rope.
It is highly recommended to add a stopper knot in the part of the line that sticks out of the Blakes hitch.
