Climbing Rope- Climbing Equipment Rental
Before experience the outdoors in Slovenia to the fullest there is one more thing you need to take care of about-your safety. Rock climbing, ice climbing and even canyoning can be done safely without a proper climbing rope.
What types of climbing ropes?
In general, there are two types of rope, dynamic and static. The dynamic ropes are stretchy and very efficient by absorbing the impact of a potentially falling climber. The static ropes, on the other hand, are not as flexible. Often the static climbing rope is used for rope ascents and for rescue purposes.
By spots climbing you will be needing the dynamic one which sector offers three different types to choose from:
-A single rope is the most commonly used either for sports, alpine and ice climbing. This rope is very easy to handle and in addition, you can use it with the belay device like GriGri.
-The half rope is usually used for multi-pitch climbing, self-belaying routes, and traditional climbing. Half type is used in pairs, therefor it is thinner than other ropes and has to be used in combination with special safety devices.
-Twin rope. This type of climbing rope is a combination of half and single rope. This is the thinner type of rope and requires far more skills than a single rope. Commonly twin ropes are used by multi-pitch climbing, ice climbing, and mountaineering.
What diameter of climbing rope do you need?
It is obvious that a thinner rope is lighter to carry, however, it requires more effort and skills to handle it.
Single ropes are in the range of 9,4 mm to 10 mm and more, and the ticker it is more common is the use. For example, 10 mm or more climbing rope is used for sport climbing and indoor climbing.
Half and twin climbing ropes are from 7-9 mm thick, jet appropriate for more skilled climbers and according to the thickness much lighter load.
What length of climbing rope should you choose?
As there are different types and diameters also there are different lengths. To choose the right length you need to know the purpose. The lengths of climbing ropes vary between 30 m to 80 m. So by choosing the right length make sure that is at least twice as long as the route. Longer is usually used by outdoor climbing while shorter 30-35 m are used indoor.
How to properly maintain the climbing ropes?
Once you use it you need to make sure you also clean it properly. Proper storage and care will ensure longer subsistence and safe use.
The ideal place to store it when not using it should be clean, dry, cool and dark. Climbing rope bags are specially made for his purpose. Before and after use make sure that the rope is not knotted.
Climbing rope is made for use that also means it can get dirty especially using outdoors. Well, guess what you can easily wash it even with a washing machine (with a gentle cycle on lower degrees). Dry the rope on naturally on the floor.
