Sad to be retiring it 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: josiahdood, 2010-01-19


I have had this rope for about 6-7 years, and it has been used extensively (especially in the last 3). The feel of the rope has stayed the same, and apart from a bit of fraying/fuzzyness, still feels much as it did when I first bought it. It's burly enough that you can abuse it, not too thick, and not thin enough that you're freaked out leading around that sharp corner. I plan on buying this same rope again.

Another thing I always get, is that people think the rope looks like an American flag... so if you're a patriot, this rope may be for you!

Boo-hoo 2 out of 5 stars

The low-down: two British dudes who can crimp really hard think they can free Salathe. They get to the valley and get spanked on Yosemite 5.10 and then whine their way up the wall. The upside? Great footage of the actual route.
