Need a way to lower a geocache down a steep embankment for a super-tricky hide? Use your cord to drop it down into place without leaving any trace you were there. Need a way to get a little boost up into a tree to retrieve one of those popular “tree climber” hides? Double the cord and use that, plus a friend’s assistance, to get up to that first handhold or limb to stand on. Of course, use at your own risk! You’ll find all sorts of uses for your paracord out on the trail — rigging a quick temporary shelter, repairing a broken pack strap, marking an unfamiliar trail, and more!
