Animated Knots provides visual and audio supported instruction for tying many knots. Here you can learn how to tie a Figure Eight Loop. This loop is what you would tie if you were setting up a top rope in a gym. After tying the loop, the climber would attach their carabiner(s) to the loop, ensuring that if they use 2 that they are opposite and opposed. The belayer would then attach themselves to the belayers end of the rope with either a GriGri or ATC.
