The kernmantle construction combines the historical advantages of a twisted rope (in the core) with the braided rope (on the sheath). As a result, nylon can be used to create a product that suits all the applications rock climbers devise for it, in hundreds of colors and patterns. We don’t have to be chemists to understand all the foibles of nylon ropes. Nylon’s manufactured strength can be greatly decreased by heat, mildew, mold, chemical contamination, and UV light. Chemists might find more precise ways to describe how much the manufactured strength can be decreased by what temperatures, types and quantity of mold and mildew, and frequency and duration of UV light.
We retire it when it’s too old and tired to continue climbing, and we keep it away from all the things that could be harmful to it. Also, we don’t have to be surgeons to understand that sharp edges and abrasive surfaces do enormous damage to a climbing rope. While certain knots and hitches can help mitigate these hazards to a climbing rope, it is important to use best practices with anchoring, lead climbing, or toproping to avoid severing nylon ropes. In this text five different kinds of nylon tools will be described: climbing ropes, static anchoring ropes, cordellette, accessory cord loops, and nylon slings.
It’s time to climb, but remember, this is an Experiment. Throughout the use of this knot, I want to be sure that my reasoning is sound. I climb and I have a great time, but the crux of this climb proves to be more than a little challenging. I probably take ten lobbing lead falls. When I finally lower back to the ground, my aching, tired hands can barely untie the welded knot. If I had selected one of those bowline variations, the knot would have been untied five minutes ago. Because there is no one else at the crag to mentor, because Derek is just as capable of inspecting my bowline as I am, and because ten whippers hopelessly tighten a figure 8 follow through, I’m probably going to pick a double bowline with Yosemite finish on my next lap.
