    If you want to TIE the end of a rope to the end of a piece of webbing, in a strong way, how do YOU tie it???

    Beer knot works, but it is kinda razzle dazzle...

    In river work, we used what we called a LZB (for led zeppelin bend - the led part made it easier to remember). Not sure how it would fair in a canyon if you had to pull the rope in tight quarters.

    KNOT.

    Triple fisherman's?

    What about just a figure eight retraced?

    One I've bee curious about...from the fly fishing folks:

    Seaguar knot. What about that rig?

    I find that a sheet bend works well (http://www.animatedknots.com/sheetbend/). But because this is a life or death knot I'd probably do it up more securely by adding a few extra wraps such as in an Albright (http://www.animatedknots.com/albright/).

    Honestly, Tom's figure 8 on the rope and overhand on the webbing is much easier to inspect and easier to untie. But the Albright has always been one of my favorite ways to attach lines of vastly different diameter.

    Works great for attached spectra fishing line to monofilament too...

    My plan has always been an overhand on a bight in the webbing and a bowline in the rope. The only reason I ever considered this was if your rope was too short to pull and you had no other means of getting down canyon, any other uses that people have come across??
