Skinny, Light, & Non-stretch!

This new 3/8" (9.5mm) black rope from New Tribe is light, compact, and reportedly only 2% stretch! The lack of bounce makes my two-feet-together SRT ascents a pleasure compared to my old "static" rope.



Grigri & Trango Cinch descents take more finesse with the down lever than thicker ropes, and the start/restart rappell is a bit abrupt, but well worth the tradeoffs.



A side benefit is the black color that disapears in the tree.
