This is an inherently secure variation of the #1034 1/2 Bowline.
It has 3 rope diameters inside the nipping loop (which takes the form of a helix).
It is also resistant to ring-loading failure mode.

I haven't seen this particular variation of #1034 1/2 before...
Due to the inherent security of this Bowline variation - I would like to present it in my next updated Analysis of Bowlines paper.

Note: I have advanced the term inherently secure to denote that this Bowline variation is suitable for life critical applications in human rated EN 892, EN 1891, and EN 564 ropes. These types of human rated ropes and cords are not constructed from 'dyneema' material. I do not warrant inherent security in ropes/cords constructed from 'dyneema' material (unless peer reviewed testing has confirmed otherwise).

Nice work yChan.
