Two new products in the climbing section.
Beal Edlinger 10.2mm rope – an entry level rope from Beal. A good all rounders rope at an exceptional price. Only £64 for a 50m rope. If you want to get out climbing but are short of funds then this is the rope for you.
At the other end of the spectrum if the Joker 9.1mm rope. This rope has been UIAA rated as a Full rope, half rope and twin rope. Plus it’s available with Golden dry treatmant for winter use. Plus it’s available in 35m lengths as a scrambling/touring/confidence rope. It really is one rope for anything. Due to it’s thin nature, when used as a single strand it takes experience and vigilance to use safely and it may not trigger auto locking belay devices to lock, so it’s back to the old fashioned belaying techniques. High performance rope for high performers.
Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are not without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end. – [Edward Whymper]
