Secondary Support Lines (Half Hitches) [Level 3]
Notes and Resources:
This method of tying off support lines is fast and looks attractive, but is only secure enough for non-critical elements of the suspension.
Aside from lifting the limb to reduce pressure, there are two other options to avoid wearing out your bight: clipping a carabiner into the bight and using that, or going through the cuff instead of going through the bight. If you run the support line back through the cuff, be cautious that sometimes as the angles of the limbs change, it may wind up pressed against the skin, and if you lift or lower while it's against the skin you can cause really nasty rope burn.
