Recent Rope/Cord/Webbing Reviews

Edelweiss Axis 10.3

rated 4 of 5 stars This was my first rope and, I think, a very good one for that purpose, but not much else. It's proven super durable over several seasons but has a high weight per meter that makes it as heavy as my 70m Sterling Velocity 9.8mm. Superb value including double dry treatment and a pretty decent rope bag. I bought my Edelweiss Axis 10.3mm rope in 2010 as my first climbing rope. I've used it for hundreds of sport and trad climbs including multipitch routes and despite its glaring drawbacks of weight and… Full review

DIY: Paracord

rated 5 of 5 stars I write this due to the abundance of so called paracord on the Web and in stores. Okay, I'll assume we all have heard of paracord. Now real paracord has 7 internal strands which can be so so useful from gear repair to fishing to the limits of your imagination. 550 paracord should hold 550lbs also! We had emergency egress units where it was just a hook or carabiner a figure 8 and 550 cord we all had tactical belts that have the emergency loop where you can hook up too. It is some mighty handy stuff… Full review

Edelweiss Discover 8 mm

rated 5 of 5 stars My new favorite rope for glacier travel. ME: So, you carry the tent and stove and I'll carry the rope?" Partner who hasn't seen the rope yet: "That sounds fair." ME: *Smiles.  My rope is under 3 pounds I bought this rope for one reason; low-angle glacier travel on Mt. Rainier, Baker, etc. At 8mm this 30m rope won't work with many belay devices so TRY IT OUT WITH YOUR PRUSIKS AND BELAY DEVICES BEFORE YOU GO CLIMB! Caveat:  I am using this rope as a single rope even though it is ONLY rated as a… Full review

PMI Max-Wear Sport 11mm

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a tough rope. One of the longest lasting ropes on the market. Doesn't work well with certain devices like ATC's or Petzl Stop. Very resistant to abrasion, good for jugging. I have used these ropes for the past 9 years for cave exploration. Good quality and last longer than other ropes. It takes more abrasion and doesn't burn as easily during fast rappels. A good buy if you need a tough rope. Full review

LiveFireGear 550 Firecord

rated 5 of 5 stars Check out this nice cord from LiveFireGear with internal FIRECORD. Full review

Beal Edlinger 10.2 mm

rated 1 of 5 stars Poor "sheet slippage." I've been through maybe a dozen ropes in my past. This is the worst rope I've ever had. On my second day out with this rope, we took two small falls (fall factor < 0.1). I got more than an inch of "sheet slippage". I've seen "sheet slippage" before, but not before at least one year of weekly usage. I'll never get a Beal rope again. If "sheet slippage" is highly variable, at least stay away from the "batch number" M02R157111 (listed on the tag attached to the rope). Full review

Beal Joker 9.1 mm

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light is right. A very versatile rope. Recently I lost 30 or so pounds, so you may ask, “Why do you care what your rope weighs? Now you can carry more stuff easier.” The answer is, “Because I can.” Would Mallory have worn hobnailed boots and wool if he had been able to wear fleece and nylon? Of course not, light is right. My main workhorse climbing rope is a 10.2mm monster that is fantastic till I need to carry it. I saw that Beal was making a thin rope that works in single, half or twin… Full review

Mammut Infinity 9.5 mm

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An excellent rope for both sport climbing and trad. I bought a 70 m, bi-color (color change at midpoint) for use in El Potrero Chico. The length and color scheme facilitated two combining 100' pitches and efficient rappels off long sport routes. The 9.5 mm diameter is a reasonable compromise of weight and beefiness. The rope handles smoothly without feeling slick. I also used it this fall leading trad in the Gunks. No complaints, and the 70 m length allowed us to sometimes combine what was normally… Full review

New England Ropes / Maxim KM III 3/8"

rated 5 of 5 stars As a person who deals with climbing ropes on a near-daily basis, I find New England Ropes to be the best on the market. The Maxim KM III is an example of a quality, static rope and is my choice in situations that do not warrant a dynamic rope. I have been using New England's dynamic and static ropes for nearly 13 years on the Adventure Challenge Courses I manage. I think they are the best ropes in the industry. I've gone through dozens of ropes and belayed thousands of climbers. I've never had a… Full review
