      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!

tree sap on ropes

Recommended Posts

My buddy got some tree sap on his rope from tying it off while doing some tr solo. A section of rope remained stiff after a few days. What do you think? Is it unsafe to use now?Even after working the rope back and forth its still pretty rigid.

Alot of the usual nonsense but some info if you filter out the chaff. :)

Good luck

 

PS, I think Bill Coes comment on the bottom is the most sound, hes got the wisdom.

I've got sap on a couple ropes... it dries out and flakes off on its own. Sort of sucks to get sticky shit on your gear in the mean time, but we're seriously only talking a week of use or so. Dont worry aboot it.
