Tips for Selecting the Best Climbing Rope:
If you’ve never bought your own climbing ropes before, it can be stressful and overwhelming. You know the gravity of this decision - and you want to get it right. Don’t stress - we’re here to help. Here are some factors to consider:
Rope Length & DiameterOne of the most important factors of choosing your climbing rope is the size - meaning length and diameter. Thicker climbing ropes are obviously more reliable. They’re abrasion-resistant and stand up to frequent use. But if you’re hiking long distances and embarking on multi-pitch climbs, you may sacrifice some width for a skinnier, lighter-weight rope. In terms of length, just ensure that half your rope length exceeds the distance you’re going to climb.
Rope TypeThere are a few different types of rope: single, half, twin, and static. Single ropes work fine for trad climbing, sport climbing, and top roping - but if you’re going ice climbing, you’ll want half ropes or twin ropes.
It should go without saying that safety rating should factor into your decision. Many climbing ropes feature some sort of safety rating from the UIAA.
Other FeaturesA few other features that you may find beneficial include dry treatment, middle marking, end warning, and bi-coloring.
