If the rope is hanging, you can tell by pulling on it whether it is dynamic or not. If the rope still has factory tape on the ends, if the rope is dynamic, it will be marked with a “1” (single rope), “1/2” (half rope), or “00” (twin rope). Any other marking or no marking may indicate that the rope is static.

How do you get your quickdraws back?

  3. Ask your belayer to take you tight.

Can I rappel with a dynamic rope?

Yes. Dynamic ropes work perfectly well for rappelling, and in certain situations they may actually be favourable to a static rope. Dynamic ropes are built to flex and stretch when put under stress; this makes them ideal if you’re going to be using them for any kind of activity involving lots of movement.

IMLAY CANYONEERING ROPE is made for the rigors of canyoneering. Tightly woven of 100% polyester for toughness and water-non-absorbance, our static rope has a tight, thick sheath that resists cutting and abrasion. The polyester core and sheath work together to make a nice handling, very static rappelling rope.

What gear do I need for canyoneering?

Basic gear needed for any canyoneering trip, even non-technical, dry canyons:

  • Boots or other sturdy shoes to fully protect your feet.
  • Durable pants that can withstand catching on rocks and vegetation.
  • Extra layers for unexpected cold or wet conditions.
  • Food, water.
  • First aid kit and knowledge about how to use it.

Do you need a static rope for canyoneering?

If you’re just getting into canyoneering, here is what I would recommend. First: 30m (100ft) by 8-10mm static rope. This will allow you to do rappels up to 90 feet when used with a pull cord. Since the tallest rappel in most canyons is less than 90 feet tall, this will be the only rope you’ll need for most canyons.

Does rock climbing rope float?

Polypropylene, which does hold a good knot, is used for the sheath (mantle) of these high-strength ropes. Not all rescue ropes need to float. Important characteristics of polyester for this application are that it is hydrophobic (fibers don’t absorb water, which can weaken a rope) and it has very low stretch.
