How Do We Pick The Best Climbing Rope?
The rope is the major component while climbing. Unless you are doing free/bouldering climbing, your life depends on your climbing rope. Just think once, if you are in the middle of your climbing & all of a sudden, your rope cracked up then what will be the outcome. Yes, we will be like a dead duck. So, without giving a second thought, we just need to ensure the good climbing rope for the perfect purpose. There are so many constituents by which we can pick the best climbing rope for our ascending. The factors are:
- Rope diameter
- Weight per meter
- Certification (single, double, twin)
- Falls held
- Dry coating
- Maximum impact force
- Static & dynamic elongation
These are some of the factors by which we can stipulate our climbing ropes. Let me give you an example: if you are one in number, then you can use single rope which can be easily be conducted by one, but if you buy double or half rope, then you have to be paired with one another. So, based upon your desideratum you have to choose the rope.
