Great rope

This is the only rope I will continue to buy.... but I was actually surprised how much I still have left after only a few stops and slings made.

>Rating: 3

Cost Effective

I got a spool of the 6mm after a failed attempt on the Palisade Traverse (8 mile technical ridge traverse on delicious Sierra granite). There is very limited information on the route and we soon found ourselves realizing we had a lot of mandatory rappels ahead of us and not enough cord to set them up. We ended up bailing to the east and had to sacrifice a number of our good slings to get back to the glacier. I haven't made it back to the traverse yet but the spool is getting used a lot in making cordelettes and replacing tat at rappel anchors. If you are going through cord at a steady rate getting a spool is the way to go from a cost and convenience perspective.

Why only 3 stars? There wasn't anything negative about the product in your review.

Is the 3 stars for your route finding ability or for the cord?

I am considering buying the 7mm for ski...

I am considering buying the 7mm for ski rappels, I usually maintain pretty good rope protection when I can. I want something really light because this rope is in my pack all day. I just don't want to buy this rope and I give it a core shot right away because of the sheath. Not concerned with strength or size. Cheers!

This is what a lot of the ski mountaineering guys/gals are using here in Utah. This stuff is pretty bomber, I use it for all my prussiks and even rigging when I am building zip lines. I wouldnt worry about a core shot from normal wear and tear. Of course it is rope and if your rappelling and rake it left or right across sharp rock it could break down.

http://www.amazon.com/New-England-Ropes-Tech-Cord/dp/B001OPK23U this stuff is more expensive but definitely more durable. Ive held a torch to this and you cannot possibly burn it. You can only find it in 5mm though so you would need an awesome belay device. Also requires a double fish knot which will not come undone unless your Chuck Norris.

whats the best way to cut it???

whats the best way to cut it???

Wrap white fabric tape (normal climbing tape) around it as tightly as you can, then cut it on the tape. That'll keep it from fraying when you cut it, then melt the end with a lighter and let it cool, THEN remove the tape. Otherwise it can be pretty sloppy.

It's best to take it to a store like REI or your local gear store. They should have a super heated metal wire that they use to cut through the cord with. You should also be mindful of the fumes when/if cutting it your self. If you do a lot of cuts in a row and burn the ends then you can release fumes.

I use an old knife heat it on an open flame and cut the line. Then I cut a small piece of shrink tube and finish the end. The knife works great on webbing also.
