Our Grade A manila climbing ropes are individually handcrafted with a 6in. loop for attaching the rope with a time honored technique known as splicing. We then cover the loop with heavy duty nylon fabric to protect the rope from fray. Our climbing ropes can be hung with chain or looped around a fixed object in a â¤?chokerin configuration. The overall length of the climbing rope includes both the loop and splice. The end of the climbing rope is finished off with a heavy duty vinyl boot to protect the rope from fray. Our manila ropes can be used either in or out-doors but should not be stored outdoors to protect the longevity of your climbing rope.
