Belaying knot for the Mountain Rescue

The Schuhmann HMS

The Schuhmann HMS is a relative to the Munter Hitch. This knot is commonly used by the mountain rescue, so it's not very popular to normal climbers.

Nevertheless the Schuhmann HMS can be used like a Munter Hitch if more breaking force is needed.

More informations is coming soon...
