Does your retired rope need a new lease on life?

Post by Daniella » Mon Jun 11, 2018 11:33 pm

Hello Climbers,

Im looking for an old retired climbing rope to use in my studio to temporarily hoist some stones
I have lying around (im an artist). Im happy to purchase one, maybe more if possible. Any help or
leads would be appreciated.

How heavy are your rocks?

Southern Rope sell offcuts of cord which may be more suitable.
Happy climbing

Hi Nic,

Anything between 50 - 150 kg. Im looking for climbing rope specifically,
but yes, might need to head to Southern ropes if I cant get my hands on any.

Those weights, paracord will be fine and nice, low friction.
Happy climbing
