We've been missing our climbing community these days, so we decided to start a challenge to see how inventive we can all get while stuck at home and raise our knot skills to a new level. Let's have fun and get creative together.

The Basic Rules:

  1. You must follow @saltpump on Instagram or Facebook.
  2. Pick your knots, rope,  and materials. 
  3. Use your knot skills to creatively solve a problem or make an improvement to life at or near your home....  Build a hammock, a swing, a bird feeder, an obstacle course...you name it!
  4. Share your creation with us on social media, challenge a friend, and use the tag #goknots.

Who can participate?

All of our Salt Pump community and friends who follow Saltpump on IG.
