I Need a Good knot to attach a manilla rope

Hey Crossfitters!! I just got an awesome monkey bar setup in my backyard which is gonna be the base of all our equiptment. I want to post a picture and get some suggestions from everyone but I was wondering if someone can explain how to attach a picture.
My main issue is that I need a good knot to attach a rope to a board that is setup on my roof. I saw it a couple week ago and I apologize for not being able to find it myself. Does anyone have a knot that will get tighter the more we climb?
Thanks!!

Hi, there's a little icon to choose when you reply. It's the second to the last. It's a little mountain scene or something. When you mouse over it, it should say "insert image."

Two knots come to mind. Only on manila rope or other natural fiber rope a bowline knot is acceptable. The one I would lean to would be a retraced double figure eight. You should be able to find them online.
