Premium Manila. The best-wearing rope. This superior-quality Grade A three-strand manila is splinter-free and absorbs perspiration for a secure grip. 1-1/2" 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" 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 for assistance.
Step 2: Choose the length. Measure floor-to-ceiling height and deduct 1 foot 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.
