Rope knots and a high knot tying skill level are very important in the outdoors when climbing, boating, or camping. If you can tie square knot and not tie a slip knot, that may be the difference between rescuing someone or not. Use this test to check your knowledge in knot tying and usage.

The bowline is no longer used in mountaineering as a rescue knot or for tying into a harness.  The rewoven figure-8 is the standard knot.  Reference: Freedom of the Hills.

Brian - bowline is discussed on page 142 of that book.  It's good to know more knots, but of the basic knots taught in scout advancement, the bowline can be used for rescue.
