Prior to the invention of specific devices for belaying/abseiling climbers used the "Munter aka Italian hitch" Prior to this technique they used to wrap the rope around their body. The Munter hitch is useful in case of emergencies ie dropped devices or you have left your belay device in the boot of the car.It is a great hitch to know in case of emergencies,as well as a useful tool in your bag of climbing tricks. We will cover several applications.
