Doppelter Bulin Egal wie und mit welchem Knoten du dich einbindest – das freie überstehende Seilende sollte mindestens 10 cm lang sein, und der Knoten muss vor dem Losklettern an allen vier aus dem Knoten austretenden Strängen festgezogen werden. Grundsätzlich gibt es zwei Möglichkeiten des Einbindens: parallel zum Sicherungsring am Gurt, indem das Seil durch die Bauchgurtöse und weiter um den Beinschlaufensteg herum geführt wird, oder direkt in den Anseilring. Wer sich parallel einbindet, schafft kompakte Verhältnisse.

Diese und ähnliche Situationen wird jeder Kletterer im Laufe seines Kletterlebens oft erleben. Ganz einfach, weil diese Auseinandersetzung zum Klettern dazugehört. Es gibt keine messbaren Größen wie Steilheit, Griffgröße, Griffabstand o. , um ein objektives Maß für das Belastungsempfinden beim Klettern zu definieren. Deshalb ist es wichtig, sich mit den Schwierigkeitsgraden vertraut zu machen. Im deutschsprachigen Raum kommen in den Kletterhallen zwei Schwierigkeitsskalen vor: Die UIAA- und die französische Skala.

Der Standard: Anseilen mit Achterknoten Der Basisknoten zum Anseilen ist der Achterknoten. Zum Einbinden wird er gesteckt. Seine Vorteile: Ein zusätzlicher Sicherungsknoten ist nicht nötig, und der Achter hat ein gut zu kontrollierendes Knotenbild. Nachteil: Der Knoten ist nach Sturzbelastung relativ schwer zu öffnen. Fest zugezogene Knoten können gelockert werden, indem man sie durch Kneten bearbeitet. Wichtig für jeden Anseilknoten ist, diesen bis zum Ende fertig zu knüpfen und anschließend von allen Seiten fest zu ziehen.
