First Few Climbs

Really liking this rope so far. It is very soft and nice to the touch. Works great in my grigri. It came in a red rope bag which was a great touch. I am so far very happy with the rope. You can tell it is high quality just by looking. Time will tell but it has held up perfectly so far, though I've only done a few climbs.

2 yrs later

2 yrs later my rope is still holding up.... Unfortunatly the smooth action of this rope has deplinished remarkably. It feels like the core has twists in it... Idk maybe it's just me. The rope frays a bit but its also a tighter woven rope and seems to have more threads than the average rope. Still taking soft falls and the rope is holding up fine. My climbing partner has a blue water rope around the same age and it feeds and handles like a dream... But the UIAA falls between the two are pretty extreme. I'll give edelweiss one more chance, if the same issue occurs with my next rope, I'll be sure to post. Some good notes though, I was climbing in the rain the other day and the rope didn't draw a single drop of water, the rest of my gear was soaked but the rope was damn near completely dry. All in all it's still a great rope but I'm a bit disappointed in the handling, ESPECIALLY In a GriGri. I'm gonna give it a good wash and see if it helps. I'd still recommend this rope.

nothing but good things.

I bought this rope last year and have climbed & rappelled on it probably around a 100 times thus far. I've used gri gri's, tube belays, figure eights and have ascended it a few times for shits and giggles. Its held up quiet well to rope drag and fast rappels. The rope doesn't have a half way mark but mine is bi-pattern so a center marker is usless. I have led a few routes on it and it worked out fine. According to the stats as far as elongation and amount of falls held this is a really well rounded rope. I can truely say I'm more than happy with this rope and will most likely stick with this company due to their product. The only thing is the sheath seems tightly woven with smaller fibers wich seems to provide less friction than other ropes. Its really not even noticable though, great rope and I would recommend to all.

High hopes, let down.

Unfortunately, after 3 months of occassional climbing, I have deemed this rope not a good buy. I was very dissappointed in how quickly and easily the sheath was fraying. Even after the first day the rope looked rather beat up... On paper this rope looked like a winner, but in real life, it was a different story. For the record, this rope was used mainly in BCC, sport leading and some TR.

Solid work horse rope

This is the rope I use for pretty much everything...sure its a little heavier and stiffer than some, but I know I can fall on it day after day and let it take some pretty decent abuse and it'll still be ready to take more the next day. No complaints on this one for sure, I'd recommend it to everyone!!

discrepancies

I returned the Edelweiss element II ARC for this guy, figuring that maybe the dry-treatment will come in handy more-so than the bi-pattern. First of all, it came with a neat little display bag, or so I thought. Until I opened it up and it has a ground sheet and a strap to hold coiled rope built in! That was unexpected, considering the other Element rope did not come with a bag of any sort. Then there was the spec sheet. Apparently it's rated for 11 falls, not 12 as stated. Static elongation is 36% not 37, the impact force is 8kN not 7.8. Also, the spec doesn't say anything about it being SuperEverDry. I guess I'll just have to trust it? I can't think of a way to actually test that... The spec sheet that came with the Element II ARC was true the the website and much more informative about the ropes features. What it comes down to is, if what I have is truely is a dry rope, I'm pumped.

Does this rope have a center mark?

Does this rope have a center mark?

I do not believe so. A similar rope, the Edelweiss Element II ARC 10.2mm Climbing Rope, has a bi-pattern though, and you can snag it on many sites for cheaper (don't tell BC though :) )

Responded on

Similar, yes. But it is not dry treated, and it's rated for one less fall. Though I do like the bi-pattern quite a bit. Thanks for your help.

Great work horse

I bought this rope with a friend and cut it in half for a 30M gym rope. Of all the ropes I have used most, this is the one. I bought this rope looking for a work horse to stand up to repeated lead falls in the gym and small routes outside. The rope does get kinked a bit too much, so it only gets 4 stars but other than that its fantastic. 6 months of lots of climbing and good falls on it and the rope looks still pretty new. For ropes I think I will stick with Edelweiss and Beal!

Don't recommend

I used this rope 3 times (twice top roping and once for trad climbing.) By the 3rd use I noticed the core showing in 2 places.

I wasn't hard on the rope and I was really surprised that it was in such horrible shape after just 3 uses. I would not recommend this rope.

Responded on

I have used this rope a lot as my project rope for indoors and some outside stuff. I've fallen on it a lot. I think you should be more careful about the rope drag, or perhaps it was defective one. I think its fantastic

Responded on

I also bought this rope and the first time I used it, I saw a tuft of what I took to be some kind of plant bristle sticking out of the rope. I was belaying so didn't give it a thought. Maybe a month later I was again belaying and saw it again. This time I made a point of inspecting it more closely and saw it was some beige threads that appeared woven into the rope or cut and unwinding from the rope. I am fastidious about rope care and the climbing area is pristine (no broken glass, etc...). I emailed Edelweiss with a picture, it's been almost 2 months and nothing. I have no idea if it is safe, or how it happened, but I suspect a manufacturing defect. I'll never buy Edelweiss again, that's for sure.

Update (25.11.2013)

Received a very kind reply within one day from Edelweiss to my second email (which I sent the same day I posted the previously-written negative update). They said they hadn't received my first email. More importantly, their technical manager understood from the pictures and the production codes I sent that the issue was simply excess fibers left over from an "air splice" (something about the high-pressure joining of threads before the rope is woven). They assured me that it was simply cosmetic and in no way would affect the rope's integrity. So, back to 4/5 stars (close to 5/5 but that chintzy rope bag, and also the rope end is already slightly separating from the melted sealing, not a big deal but 5/5 should be perfection in my book). I'm happy with the way Edelweiss handled the issue, they were very polite and took the time to explain everything (although I'm not sure I really understand what an air splice is). So I would buy again from Edelweiss after all. Happy climbing ...

Is the orange rope dry treated ? because...

Is the orange rope dry treated ? because it dosnt say it when you choose if you want the orange or blue rope and it says the blue one is superdry treated

Responded on

According to the site, they are both dry treated, If one was, and the other not, they would have seperate product pages. However, if you find that it's not the case, BC has a no-questions-asked return policy, so they'd be super helpful about it, and if the product was mismarked, I'd be greatly surprised if they didn't pay for return shipping as well.

Responded on

As you can see from the drop down list when u select the color of the rope only the blue is a dry rope and priced higher. The orange is not a dry rope.
