DescriptionChoosing the right rope is easy! Follow these 4 steps:
Un-Manila. The look and feel of manila, with superior strength at two-thirds the weight. Rot/mildew resistent polypropylene won't splinter. 1-1/2" (4 cm) dia. Choosing a rope: Step 1: Choose the knots, if any. Knot options encourage success for younger climbers. No Knots. Traditional rope with no knots is a good choice for older ages, but for elementary students you may want to consider another option. Rest Grip Knots. Woven and spliced into the rope at 18" (46 cm) intervals to provide a better grip when ascending the rope, rest areas when descending. Beginner Knots. Large knots tied in the rope itself that form platforms every 18 inches (46 cm) for assistance. Step 2: Choose the length. Measure floor-to-ceiling height and deduct 1 foot (1/2 m) to determine your required length. Step 3: Choose the end style. Polyboot End. Nonraveling poly "boot" is permanently attached to rope-end. Turk's Head Knot End. A popular option that adds stability and comfort for the climber. Leather seat and large knot provide a sure starting point as a "platform" foot hold. NOTE: Mats, spotting, and supervision required when climbing.
