The Girth Hitch... oddly enough it is used more than you think. It probably has its place, from elongating an anchor, to using it as a constrictor anchor so it doesn’t drop down when unweighted... whatever the circumstance, make sure to load it correctly. Often the girth hitch is seen being used in a hasty manner, cinched down, and pulled hard against itself, which weakens the material substantially.
