SBR Short #3 – Dragon Bowline

Aerial Sports Program Manager Troy Phillips recently walked us through the process of tying the illusive Dragon Bowline.

The bowline knot is popular among mountaineers, climbers, sailors and others. Use the bowline when you need a non-slip loop at the end of a line. The knot won’t slip, regardless of the load applied.

For further reference here is how to tie a bowline knot

Begin by forming a loop or “rabbit hole.” The “rabbit” (working end) of the rope goes up through the hole, around the tree, then back down the hole. The knot will slip as it tightens, so allow a long working end.

Hope you enjoyed this Dragon Bowline lesson.
