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.
Edelweiss Canyon Rope is designed specifically for canyoneering applications. With an Everdry coating and a sheath made from nylon and polyester, this rope sheds water like a husky sheds hair. All Edelweiss static lines are designed to take up to a factor 1 fall. This extra margin of safety is key to your success in wild canyons across the globe. See the static rope section for more info on Edelweiss low-stretch ropes.
