    Big mountains call for big rappels.

    Instead of dealing with a pair of twin ropes on long alpine rock routes, simplify your climbing style with a standard single cord and the 7mm Sterling Tag Line Rope. Lead pitches with the standard single cord, then make full-length rappels when necessary with the lightweight Tag Line.

    • Static construction has a 3.5% elongation and a minimum breaking strength of 2,788lb
    • Not intended for use as a lead rope
    • The use of tag lines is an advanced climbing technique that requires adequate experience and proper training

      I love having a lightweight tag line for climbing multi-pitch routes! I've been using it on desert towers in Colorado National Monument and in the Moab area. It's easy to see how much time and energy a small lightweight rope save you on the decent when putting up long routes.

      Is there a progress-capture device I could use to haul a bag with this rope? Seems like everything is rated for 8 - 11mm ropes. I want to use a Petzl Tibloc (8 - 11mm); am I going to die a violent death trying to haul a bag with this 7mm rope?

      Yes, I already own this rope, and I'd rather not buy a new one (e.g. the 8mm version).



      But in all seriousness, I'd get a bigger line. Pretty much every progress-capture device currently on the market is, as you said, rated to a minimum rope diameter of 8mm, and anything under 8mm can cause a very unreliable grabbing experience. Your pig could definitely cause some death if the Tibloc (or any other >8mm device) didn't completely grab the line while hauling.

      Larger diameter haul lines are generally more durable, safer in progress-capture devices, and can even be used as a backup lead line if your primary gets sliced on the wall.

      I use an old 9.5 lead line to haul - heavier, but I like the safety and decreased pucker factor in the event of having to jug up that thing.
