Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great in the canyons of Utah I got the rope for a canyoneering trip to Utah. It was one of the easiest ropes i used on the trip. Its sheath held up very well to the rough sandstone when we pulled it down from the rappels and it thin diameter made light and easier to pack the thicker options. It might not be the best rope but it sure gets the job done well.

The sheath is polyester, is the core as well? How much does this rope absorb water? Got a lot of very wet canyons to run!

Asked by: Nels
Both the sheath and core are 100% polyester. We have heard feedback that this rope does not pick up much water weight.

Is this good for general repelling and top-roping?

Asked by: Wesley
This is a static rope and is not recommended for top roping exercises. The following Expert Advice article may offer some insight on a more appropriate rope for your needs: https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/ropes.html
