SAC notes on 100' and 25' ropes/cordage

Posted By: Zak Smith on September 1, 2017

There have been some questions about the rope/cordage required for 2017.

The 100′ of rope/cord capable of 100 lbs should be thought of as haul line. You may use “550” cord as long as you are willing to trust it to haul approx 100 lbs of your gear.

The 30′ of cord with a strength at least 10 kN may be static line. It is typically either 7 mm poly/nylon cord or 5.5 mm with a dyneema/spectra core.
