    Cord-a-plenty.

    Good Cord

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use this for foot loops on my frog system and to connect my top ascender to my semi-circle biner holding my harness together. 6mm is thick enough to feel secure while on rope with 150' of empty air underneath you and thin enough to be fairly lightweight and wrap up compactly.

    Good for anchor building

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this to use for building anchors when ski-mountaineering. It's a bit stiff and hard to work with, but it's cheap enough that you don't mind when you have to leave it behind.

    Good for top-anchor building.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I cut this into a 40ft, 2 - 25ft, and a 10ft length so far and tied them into loops with triple fisherman's. I use it to sling rocks and trees for natural pro anchors, usually for top-ropes or at a multi-pitch belay with natural pro. Cord is super stiff when new (almost like wire) and isn't usable for prussics as far as I can tell and has stayed pretty stiff even with use. Not nearly as strong as titan cords and falls short of the strength of traditional 7mm or burly 8mm cords, but I'm always using it with multiple strands/loops sharing load, so it works for these applications.



    Easy to thread through tube webbing if you want to add in an extra layer of abrasion resistance over edges.



    Can pass as a light cordelette, but I prefer using an 8ft pre-sown dynema sling on multi-pitch as they rack cleaner and are stronger.

    What is the actual strength of this cord? The specs say that it's "1888 ft", which doesn't make much sense to me. Is it strong enough to use as a cordelette for a top rope anchor?

    Best Answer

    Sorry for the confusion, typo on our error. So it should read 1,888 lbf, or pound per force, you can also rate it at 8.4kn. What you use it for is entirely up to personal preference. I used to use 6 mm cordelette as an anchor. After reading and talking with a lot of friends who are more experienced than me, I got a 6 mm "power cord" as the >2,000 lbf was not "accepted" as strong enough for most applications. For general use I would at least get a 7 mm accessory cord or something like http://www.backcountry.com/sterling-powercord-cordelette-6mm?ti=UExQIENhdDpBY2Nlc3NvcnkgQ29yZHM6MTo0OmJjc0NhdDgxMTEwMDU4&skid=STE0015-ONCO-S64M21FT . I wont go to something as thin as regular 6 mm nylon again unless I have a more full understanding of the forces that could be at play and weight is very important to me. Generally weight doesnt matter in top rope situations.
