Tips For Selecting The Best Rope:

If you’ve never bought your own rope for rock climbing 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 & Diameter: One of the most important factors of choosing your rock climbing rope is the size - meaning length and diameter. Thicker 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 Type: There are a few different types of rope: single, half, twin, and static. Which is right for you? It depends on the type of climbing you’ll do. 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.
  • Safety Rating: It should go without saying that safety rating should factor into your decision. Many ropes feature some sort of safety rating from the UIAA.
  • Other Features: A few other features that you may find beneficial include dry treatment, middle marking, end warning, and bi-coloring.
