Would this 30M rope be appropriate for use as a lead rope in the gym?

Responded on

I thing you need to buy a "gym" rope...30M can do the job for start

Responded on

This would work depending on how high the wall is you'd be climbing but since it's dry treated it's not really considered a "gym" rope. 30m roughly translates to roughly 98ft.

Sorry, I should have elaborated further. I'm thinking about using this rope mostly for leading in the gym (maximum length req 28M) and double duty for ski mountaineering or just having a lightweight rope in the pack for when I run across sketchy terrain and/or conditions outdoors. Thanks to everyone for the previous replies.

The length, 30m, would be okay, but I think you'd be better off with a dedicated gym climbing rope as they are meant for the abuse of repeated falls, lowering, etc.. You could probably get away with using this rope in the gym, but at the risk of wearing it out quickly.

if you're able to climb outside and have a full 60m rope, just chop the ends off after they're worn out and use that. otherwise, this would work fine.
