In climbing, mountaineering, canyoning... one of the essential equipments is the rope, it allows you to be sure on the steepest walls and protects you from the dreaded fall. It is therefore essential to equip yourself with it before setting off on an adventure. There are many different types, and choosing the right one can be a real obstacle course. At ALPINSTORE, we help you find the perfect rope for you!
Choosing the right climbing rope
The climbing rope is designed to provide maximum safety. It is made up of a strong resistance, as well as a robustness and a protection to all types of bad weather and degradations (UV, cold, rubbing...). It is therefore important to choose your rope according to your level of practice and the terrain. Double ropes are ideal for occasional climbers who want to climb long routes, they are easily distinguished and their handling is more accessible. Single ropes are more suitable for indoor use without the need for abseiling, or for more experienced climbers. Finally, it is important to consider the length of the rope, which generally varies between 30 and 100 meters. Take a rope that corresponds to the average length of the routes you use.
