Clove Hitch 

Clove hitch is simple to tie and is useful in all aspects of mountaineering. It locks readily when loaded and is simple to adjust. It is this simple adjustability that makes its prime use as a method of attachment to an anchor system, although it can be used in many other situations. A further benefit is that it can be tied into a karabiner with just one hand what is useful especially on steep ground.
