Attaching to the anchor with a one-handed clove hitch is beneficial for a number of reasons.
- You are hardwiring into the anchor and you need no other tether.
- A clove hitch is easily adjustable.
With anchor at head or chest height, raise rope and intentionally back clip the carabiner twisting the rope towards yourself.
Pick up the rope that is coming from the back.
Twist toward yourself again and clip it. Creating a clove hitch.
