Tripod Lashing


Plain turns are preferred for MOST Scout Pioneering applications. On the occasions when a heavy load needs to be supported for an extended period of time on a structure that will receive continual use in all kinds of weather, e.g. for a camp seat, or an uncovered Chippewa Kitchen, with lots of heavy hanging cast iron cookware, that will be used throughout the summer on a daily basis, racking turns (“figure of eight”) are recommended, because more of the rope will be in contact with the tripod legs.
