How NOT to sling a chickenhead!

Be safe out there. It's all about the trucker's hitch.

This does not look safe! Learn and use a girth hitch. This looks about as safe as a lasso around a beachball!

OK kids listen up. You can't really tell with certainty from the pic that those chickenheads will take a proper tie off or not. The lower one looks to me as though a knot would actually make it less secure. Hence the very long runners before the rope is attached.

ZOSO hit the chicken on the head.

You can bet your ass I would have girth/trucker hitched if there was more head to hitch to.

There is actually one more chicken head tie off on this pitch before these that protects a mantle. good stuff.

please post pics of the proper way to tie these off when you do it.
