Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Scouts are required to tie various knots in a length of rope


A length of cordage with a loop at each end. A wooden block to fix the rope to. 4 broom handles with a hook fitted to one end


Scouts have to use the hooked broom handles to tie knots in the rope. They need to use the hooks to pick up the rope by the loops in order to tie the knot. You can make the challenge as hard as possible, depending on which knot you want tied. They cannot touch the rope with their hands except to untie the rope
