Never seen the first one, but looks like some sort of stopper.
Second one is a sheet bend

Would love to know what that first hitch is used for as depicted in the picture as it just looks like a bunch of grapes and of no use to anyone. A rolling hitch is basically a clove hitch with more turns used to prevent it from sliding then followed by the final hitch to secure it. Would not like to use that first one as a stopper either.

Here you go Les. Its a climbing knot.
History: The Klemheist (or Kleimheist - it appears to be widely spelled both ways) is a derivative of the original Prusik knot , now your going to ask whats a Prusik knot :lmao:

It appears to be identical to the knot described by Ashley for securing a loop to a vertical pole (ABOK # 1762, p 299).
Slide and Grip Knots: The Klemheist is a good example of the family of "Slide and Grip" knots. It may be the preferred choice when the load is known to be in one direction only. The Autoblock and the Bachmann perform a similar function but both require a locking carabiner.


Risk: Only pull on the Prusik Loop. Do not grip the knot itself and pull because the knot then slips. Similarly with the Bachmann: don't pull on the carabiner: this quickly releases the grip.

Variations: With these knots the number of turns should be increased or decreased to suit the ropes and the conditions, i.e., before using any Slide and Grip knot, test it to see that it both grips and releases well.
