This molten-hot part of the SHERRILLtree lineup is built by Teufelberger and uses the Flexifirm Core Technology (trade name Tachyon) to deliver climbers a unique, lowstretch, tough-skinned, double-braid that stays round and firm under load.
Unlike, lava, the substance for which it was named, SHERRILLtree’s Lava Rope remains a pliable, versatile climbing line with excellent “hand” and the ability to help you work the most challenging trees. It won’t turn into “rock” and will age with grace and performance.
Like lava, much lies beneath the hardened exterior of this rope. The Lava Rope contains a unique third “magma strand” that gives the line spectacular support and density to both core and mantle. The Lava provides excellent traction to both split-tails and ascenders, resulting in enhanced performance of moving rope and stationary rope climbing techniques.
Spliceable and strong from its core to sheath, this double-braid line is built for the rigors of tree climbing. The Lava flows smoothly through a wide array of modern mechanical devices, thanks to its small size and sleek jacket. With four distinctive and unique looks that can be spotted from great distance, the Lava rope will be noticed for its looks and performance on the job. Color options give crews and climbers the option of color-coding their ropes by use and/or climber.

Lava is an EN1891 type A rope, which is required by most mechanical ascenders nowadays.
