What you need to know
Our 18ft x 1.5in Grade A manila climbing rope is handcrafted with a technique known as splicing, the attachment end is braided back into itself to form a 6" loop. The spliced loop of your climbing rope forms a superior method for attaching the rope with a safe weight load of over 5,000 pounds, in short, it'll hold up in under the toughest conditions. The rope can be hung over a fixed object and looped back into itself or you can use a chain and carabiner. The loop is covered with a heavy duty nylon friction guard to protect from fray. The end of the climbing rope is finished off with a heavy duty vinyl boot to protect from fraying.
Good rope at a good price.
The rope arrived quickly and well packaged. It did have a bit of a smell to it when I took it out of the box, but I hung it in a tree in the backyard and by day 2 the smell was gone. There was a decent amount of shedding on the first 5-10 climbs but since then its pretty minimal (I primarily use it outside so its a bit hard to tell, but there isn't a bunch all over me like the first couple climbs). The heavy duty loop makes hanging it and taking it down (if you need to) a breeze and you can rest assured it is secured. A great price for a rope of this length and apparent strength. I did contact customer service because my tracking number was not showing any information, and they quickly responded even on a weekend so I have no doubt they would take care of you should there be any issues. Have bought from AF before and will again in the future. Thanks!
Learning rope climbs as a newbie, and this rope is perfect! Great quality/weight, can be used anywhere or attached without hardware. I use indoor in my garage. Only saw a little shedding out of the box for first two climbs. Nothing since, very durable, no splintering. I highly recommend this rope!!
Good construction, appropriate thickness and coarseness. Easy to get a bite, but still easy enough to slide down.
Excellent. Easy to hang, not as easy to climb after months of no gym!
