In another way to be tied "into the rope" before clipping in and also being tied into the anchor by a secondary sling you are now connected to the anchor twice.

After your rappel device is threaded you can then untie this "tie in knot" and get ready to rappel after your device is threaded and ur ready to go.... Jan 20, 2015

That looks like an exercise in over-conservatism - and at least two or three good ways to get your ropes stuck. Nov 5, 2012

Did anybody figure out what is up with the knot? There is even a locker cliped into the far overhand knot. What the heck? Oct 23, 2011
