Knots on the glazier

Both men get tied in each end of the rope with a double figure eight. The rope is 40 meters, because a crack in the glazier will never be larger than 30 meters. He ties the dog in the middle of the rope, but I don't know which knot he uses.

Every 1.5 meters he ties an apine butterfly bend. This is to get some bulk on the rope. If one of the guys falls down in a crack, the knots will dig into the snow and make it easier to hold the partner and pull him up.

Need flash to play - I don't have that. btw - is it possible to forum members outside Norway/EU to watch this clips?
I'm aiming for knots that is secure, AND that is easy to untie.
