Mountaineering ropes are divided into static ropes and power ropes. Mountaineering ropes are not disposable and require descending equipment, such as an eight shaped ring or ATC. Generally, eight shaped rings are mainly used for mountaineering. Generally, descending from a mountain is done by fixing rock nails in the crevices of the rock wall above, and then descending with double ropes.

Climbing rope

When dividing the rope, it is best to have a length equal to the maximum distance between the hands open. If it is too short, the bundled rope may become too large. When binding, if one hand cannot cope, it can also be placed on the wrist.

 

A sharp angle can have fatal consequences for the lateral cutting of the rope. When the rope is load-bearing, the rope can be easily cut with a sharp object. IN UAIA'S STANDARD CUT RESISTANCE TEST, AN 80 KG WEIGHT WAS DROPPED FROM A HEIGHT OF 5 METERS, AND THE ROPE WAS CUT AT THE EDGE OF A SHARP OBJECT WITH A RADIUS OF 5 MM PLACED LATERALLY, AND THE ROPE MUST NOT BE DAMAGED IN ANY WAY IN THE FIRST SUCH EXPERIMENT. In this way, the cut resistance index test can be passed. THE ANTI-CUTTING INDEX OF DIFFERENT BRANDS OF MOUNTAINEERING ROPES VARIES GREATLY, SOME CLIMBING ROPES CAN WITHSTAND UP TO 6-7 SIMILAR TESTS, AND SOME MODELS OF MOUNTAINEERING ROPES CAN EVEN WITHSTAND SHARP EDGE CUTTING EXPERIMENTS WITH A RADIUS OF 0.75MM, WHILE IN THE SAME CASE, THE VAST MAJORITY OF OTHER TREKKING ROPES ARE CUT.

 

Waterproof rope is what we often call dry rope, and this kind of rope outer net is generally treated with TEFLON waterproofing. The strength of the rope is reduced by more than 20% when it is wet. In mountaineering, the strength of non-waterproof ropes will be greatly reduced after being wet by snow and water, which is very dangerous.
