If you can't see the ground for some reason, one end of the rope doesn't land on the ground and is still hanging several metres in the air. Abseil down and off one end.

Half way markers or good communication with someone on the ground would avoid this scenario.

I always tie knots even if I don't need to, because I think it's a good habbit to have and I don't want to be 300m up and forget to tie them....
