Other Ropes

All the ropes on this page have their outdoor uses but they are most definitely not to be used for lead climbing!

Back Up Line is only to be used for hauling and abseils.

Walker's Confidence Ropes are for use as confidence ropes when walking and scrambling or for traversing glaciated terrain when walking or ski mountaineering - they are not for leading climbs or scrambles. Some firms make dedicated walker's confidence ropes but most people use a 25m or 30m length of dry treated short half or single rope - we offer this option on several suitable ropes - see our Climbing Ropes (Mammut Twilight and Serenity and Beal Iceline for these).

Canyoning Rope is designed specifically not to become waterlogged when abseiling down waterfalls. It is not designed to float.

Static and Semi-Static Ropes are designed for use such as abseiling and ascending a fixed rope in situations where you want the minimum of rope stretch.

For more information about ropes please see our Climbing Ropes page.
