Everything You CAN Do with Minimal Equipment


This is 11 mm arborist rope, but not necessary. Any decent piece of cordage will do. I’m using an aluminum tube on black background for illustrative purposes, but a tree branch will work just as well.

Simple handle.


Wrap it in upon itself about 5 times and snug up.

Put them together.

This configuration is pretty sturdy and can be scooched around so the hand holds are even. Probably costs a few bucks for a 20 foot piece at any home improvement store.

With a little practice can be done, undone, and redone in less than a couple minutes.
