Climbing rope

 is mainly used in the arborist market. These are highly trained individuals that are used to trim or remove trees. Besides the chainsaw the climbing rope is the most important tool the arborist uses. The Buccaneer Rope Arbor Boss rope is used to maneuver the arborist into the tree to be trimmed as well as to move around in the tree. These men and women are trained professionals on how to use climbing rope properly to the safety and inspection of the rope. These professionals are rigging experts. They have various knots and splices that are used in these ropes. Their life is hanging on this rope so the manufacturers are very critical care in making this rope. 

A climbing rope is made of polyester fiber. This is used to reduce the amount of stretch in the rope. Climbing rope is usually made in a braided construction. This yields higher tensile strength combined with balance in the rope. A balanced rope does not rotate under load. So if an arborist is climbing a rope it will stay still or if they are using the rope to let down logs or branches the object being lowered will not rotate.

There are many colors used for climbing rope. Bright colors are most desirable so the worker doesn’t accidently cut the rope with a saw. The more visible the color the safer a rope can be. Each manufacturer of climbing rope usually has a color pattern to identify their rope. This helps the end user reorder the same rope from the same manufacturer or try a new color from a different manufacturer. Climbing rope should be inspected by the person using the rope every day. When the climbing rope starts to show signs of wear or damage it should be retired for safety reasons. The best I have seen is to spray paint the rope so it is not accidently picked up and used again. The rope still has some good service life left for other applications but should not be used where life or limb could be injured.
