Shear Lashing

Shear lashing uses two or three spars or poles, 15 - 20 feet (6.1 m) of rope.

Tying: To tie a shear lashing, begin with a clove hitch around one spar. Then wrap the free end of the rope around both spars about seven or eight times. Make about three fraps around the lashing, and end up with a clove hitch on the second spar.
