      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Hardware Suggestions

Recommended Posts

My short research yielded no results for me. I have a battle rope that I'd like to try and climb, even though it's not quite designed for that purpose. I'd like to secure it to a tree limb. Looking for suggestions, I'd like to be able to take it down so it's not so exposed to the elements. All I can think of is securing a chain around the limb, fairly snug, but before I do that slide the rope through a couple of feet and make a knot.  The knot will prevent the rope from slipping out. Now, what does someone with some experience have to offer. If it's additional hardware, please leave names / links. Much appreciated.

Dynamic ropes are needed for lead climbing, but it sounds like you have more of an ascending the rope thing in mind. Static rope is better for jugging.

Regarding protecting the tree from the rope, look at this thread for some ideas. It's what I found in 5 minutes of Googling. https://www.mountainproject.com/forum/topic/112825859/peterskill-tree-anchors-protocol

You'll probably find more if you look under static line set up or maybe arborist rigs.
