Locking off an ATC


There is just one way to lock off an ATC.

Mule Hitch Method

  1. Stop your descent.
  2. Feed a bight of rope through the carabiner.
  3. Tie a Mule Hitch above the ATC.
  4. Slowly release the brake strand until the Mule Hitch slides down against the ATC and halts your descent.
