Photo 1: Make two opposing loops as though you’re making a clove hitch.
Photo 2: Close the loops together like a book rather than sliding them next to each other like you would a clove hitch.
Photo 3: Clip your biner through where your finger is holding the hitch as shown in the photo.
Photo 4: The completed munter hitch on a biner.
Photo 5: Form a loop in the working end of the munter hitch. Make sure the side of the working end nearest the carabiner sits parallel to the standing end as shown.
Photo 6: Making the mule knot. Make a bight in the working end of the rope just beyond your new loop.
Photo 7: Pull the bight through the loop to form the mule knot.
Photo 8: Lengthen the loop to prepare forming the overhand knot.
Photo 9: Wrap the bight all the way around the back of the standing strand.
Photo 10: Tie the overhand in the opposite direction of the carabiner.
