Materials:

  • About 10 ft. of 550 or 750 paracord. 

Tips: 

  • Prusik loops should be made of a cord that about 60-80% the diameter of your climbing rope. This will ensure proper grip. A thinner line will lock hard, and a wider line will not lock at all. 
  • A climber will often attach a carabiner to a prusik. Make sure that the knot in your prusik loop is offset to prevent the carabiner from resting directly on the knot.
