Good rope but creeps with the Rope Runner

Yale's poison ivy, Calamine, poison Hi-ve, blue moon, etc. (all same rope construction just different names) are very easy to splice and work well with the rope wrench, hitch climber system & blake's hitch but consistently slip/creep (for me) on the rope runner even after a decent break-in period. I'm 190lbs and have used the poison ivy, calamine & blue moon colorways of this line - all creep/slip on the rope runner. All of that said, this line works well on other climbing systems mentioned above.

poison ivy

this rope is great but honesy a little thin and a little slippery, its made primarily for those who love mechanical ascent because of the kermantle core which reduces stretch in the line, making every stride more efficiant than older non kermantle ropes. it does work great for srt climbing using hand ascenders and a pantin. but it doesnt respond as well as i would like it to to most eye to eye split tails but only whille using the v.t. knot, the marvin knot seems to do okay with it. all in all it a great product and best of both worlds type of rope for split tail climbing and srt climbing
