Overhand knots are a simple way to tie on to a long or short rope, as essential skill when travelling over hazardous terrain.
IFMGA qualified Mountain Guide Olly Allen from Mountain Tracks shows us how to tie this essential knot and how to use it differently according to the type of terrain underfoot.
