The length of rope you should use depends on where you’re going climbing. Ask for advice at your gym or consult available maps beforehand.
Always allow for a safety margin and tie a knot at the end of your rope! Simond ropes also have a middle mark, so you can tell when you’ve used half the length of your rope.
On a cliff, points may zigzag rather than being in a straight line, which will require using a longer rope.
All dynamic ropes shrink as they age. Shrinkage usually ranges from 2 to 5 percent, but can reach 10 percent depending on humidity, heat, falls, washing, etc.
To reduce this effect, our ropes are always produced with an additional margin. We still recommend that you regularly measure your rope and check the location of the middle mark.
