[Video] Building A Ladder With Rope And Poles
Building A Forest Ladder Continued
Starting with your knife or saw, you also need:
- three poles (here, green log pole pine),
- two knots ( the clove hitch and the marlinspike hitch), and
- strength (how tall of a ladder) and agility (how far apart the rungs).
Pay attention to how Kelly and Mors of Karamat Wilderness Ways check for rot and weakness in the wooden poles. You don’t want your ladder to fracture as you climb up to place each rung.
And remember to hide your ladder after use.
Watch the video for important details. This is a pretty neat skill to have.
And, as always, Learn, Act, and Share.
