Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good For Rappeling and Top Rope Climbing This is a solid workhorse rope. I've got a couple and have used them for lots of top rope use, rappelling into caves, group rappelling use and anchoring rope for climbing as well as highlines and the occasional zip line or slack rope. Overall, it's a fairly versital rope. It handles a lot of abrasion before it begins showing signs. It's low elasticity is great for typical static rope use and these things seem to last forever. The downside of it's durability is weight and thickness. There are certainly lighter and smoother feeding ropes out there. If however you are looking for something to take abusive work and are willing to accept the trade offs of more difficult handling and more weight to haul around it can be a valuable asset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Rope for Rappelling I have used this rope for recreational rappelling for about 10 years (on a single rope). I was very surprised that the rope would have lasted as long as it did considering the use and wear that I have placed on it. This is an excellent rope, and the fact it is still availble after at least 10 years should in itself speaks volumes about its worth. Wrapping the rope in a commercially available protective sheath, will definitely extend the life and help with abrasion. I have recommended this rope to anyone I know entering rappelling.
