Description

Gear as rugged as you.

Lowering down a big chunk of vertical real estate is just the beginning. When your rappel ends in a frigid pool, you need to know you've got reliable gear. Feel confident in your trusty Edelweiss Canyon Static 9.6mm Rope. Treated with EverDry, this abrasion-resistant cord won't pick up as much water weight as comparable, untreated models. Unlike many of its peers, the Canyon Static shrinks by a mere 1% in water, and weighs in at just 59 grams per meter.

Looks great but Core Shot

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been using this rope mainly for descending wet canyons up in BC. I Would say it has been used on maybe 5-10 canyons. Loved this rope, light enough, nice amount of friction and pretty hot colour.

However.... on this weekends canyoneering trip, it received a nasty core shot. The Core shot was from one repel at time the 4th of 8 people had gone down the rope the sheath had worn down to the core, where the rope was rubbing against the rock. I moved the rope so that the core shot was no longer against the rock. and observed the sheath visibly fraying where the rope now was against the rock. This was not a sharp rock but relatively smooth granite.

Overall all great rope but not tough enough.

Discover the inaccessible

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this rope so that I can make it down canyons, and out of potholes. Since my rope maintenance could use some work (through experience and proper gear) The rope is the perfect diameter for a beginning canyoneer. I will eventually shed some weight, but Ill wait until I can feel I can take better care of my rope. As previously stated, the color really sticks out on the rock. I could see this would be very handy in dark or murky water. It was so bright when I first took it out I felt like neon canyon should be named after my rope. Overall, a great rope!

How well will this rope work with a grigri 2?

Responded on

Hey null,

Thanks for your question.

Yes, this rope diameter of 9.6 will work excellent with the Petzl Grigri 2. You are just inside the optimal range of the belay device.

Grigri 2 (from Petzl.com)
For 8.9mm to 11 mm single ropes (optimized for 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm ropes)

Responded on

Null from your question i am getting the impression that you are intending to use this for rock climbing. If so this rope would be inappropriate for you because it is a non-stretching static rope which will not stretch to cushion a fall. You would instead require a dynamic climbing rope if you wish to use a gri gri to belay another rock climber.

Awesome static line for repelling

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought the 600 ft role and made a 200 and a 400 ft section. Used the 400 to repell looking glass in Moab and swung out from the ledge about a half dozen times. The color shows up amazing in photos and the weight for a rope this size is extremely manageable for a haul out and up to a big repell

Good rope

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This rope is a solid piece of equipment if your doing a little canyoneering. Not too heavy.

Does it come with a rope bag?

Does it come with a rope bag?

Responded on

It doesn't. Most ropes won't, which allows you to pick one you like.

Best Answer Responded on

For an excellent bag at a decent price I would recommend the Mammut Togir Rope Bag.

Good static rope

I use for canyoneering and I have no complaints so far. Just make sure you soak it before you take it out and use it.

Responded on

I compared the weight of the 8.3mm Imlay Canyonfire (57.3g/m) while this one is slightly more at 59g/m. It's interesting that the difference in thickness didn't affect the weight much. How do you like it compared to the management, durability, and speed of the smaller diameter ropes ?

Responded on

If space in your pack isn't a huge issue, I would say this one is the way to go. I only take smaller ropes if I really need the space, but for 90% of what I do this works fine. It's super durable, hasn't been twisting or giving me problems as far as management goes, and its easier to control the speed of your descent on this rope than it would be on thinner ones. Also, since backcountry has an awesome return policy, you can always send it back if its not what you're looking for.

Responded on

Hi, I am just getting into climbing and am looking at buying my first rope. I am just wondering why you suggest to soak this one first before using it? Cheers.

Responded on

This is more of a rappel/canyoneering rope than a climbing rope. You can top-rope with it but it is not mean for leading. It is a semi-static rope, you would probably be better off with a dynamic rope. But the instructions say to soak it because it will shrink around 5% the first time.

Responded on

Dahlin, thanks for the info. FYI, the awesome return policy has changed and is now limited.

Solid semi-static for doing laps

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The title says it all....I use this light weight rope to run solo top-roping routes with toothed devices i.e. ascender/mini traxion. Has a nice feel to the rope and feeds well. highly recommended.

Light, bright, and sheds water

I recently purchased a spool of this rope for canyoneering and tested it on the sharp granite of California. POSITIVES: The rope is light, well priced, supple enough for knot tying and easy to grip. It ran fairly fast on rappel for heavier folks as expected for a new rope. It sheds water well which is nice for long days in the canyons. The bright color is easy to see and good for photos too. We didn’t notice much bounce to this rope even given the fact that it is self-titled as “semi-static”. It’s supposed to be rated for a factor 1 fall or lower. It is not a lead climbing rope and we will definitely only be using it for canyoneering. I have seen very little wear so far – we shall see what happens after a few days in Zion. NEGATIVES: If you are new to canyoneering you might want a thicker rope or one that has a more protective sheath. This one has had no issues to date. OTHER NOTES: The manufacturer states you should soak the rope in water and let it dry fully before first use because it will shrink up to 5%.

Responded on

Do you have an update on the sheath's durability? I need a rope for tree climbing, so it's going to take a lot of abuse from ascenders and tree branches.

Responded on

Any update on durability?

The description says the rope is treated...

The description says the rope is treated with EverDry. Does this make it a dry rope?

Responded on

Yes read below

All Edelweiss ropes come treated with either Everdry or Super Everdry. The Everdry treatment developed by Edelweiss reduces water absorption by 50% and the Super Everdry by a further 25%. This has some huge advantages:
Treated ropes weigh less when exposed wet conditions

I live in Appalachia and plan on using this rope for rappels. Will it stand up to this use or should I find a static rope specifically designed for rappelling?

Best Answer Responded on

That is pretty much what this rope is designed for - its static and designed for rappelling.

Why does the product info list canyoneering...

Posted on

Why does the product info list canyoneering as the rope's recommended use and not big wall climbing? I need a static line for big wall hauling and ascending.

Best Answer Responded on

Because somebody didn't type it in - you could use this as a static line for any purpose - Edelweiss probably just designed it with canyoneering in mind.

What length is this rope please
