Description

Details

For tree climbers, rope is one leg of four on the table of efficiency and comfort—along with the harness, work-positioning lanyard, and handsaw. Without good interaction among these tools and your hands, movement within the tree’s crown can be something less than elegant.

Here comes Poison Ivy. Not only versatile for all climbing styles, with multiple color choices from high visibility to pedestrian, it’s affordable for all climbing budgets, too. Poison Ivy, with its unique double-braid construction, stays round when in use. This highly coveted ability allows smooth operation with a variety of climbing systems. Poison Ivy also has the ability to remain flexible and knot friendly for those times when nothing but cordage on cordage will do. Durable and strong, the double-braid construction delivers a lower elongation climbing line in a spliceable arborist rope.

Ideal for climbers looking for limited “bounce” and especially attractive to stationary rope system climbers longing to abandon the need for two lines when moving rope tasks are on the day’s agenda. Beefier to the grip than other 24-strand lines. Unlike other arborist climbing lines, Poison Ivy has no noticeable coating or fabric treatment to make the line feel tacky or slippery when new, which limits break-in time and enhances performance right out of the bag.

While the Poison Ivy's are great rope, they're not EN1891 type A rope.

Easy on the eyes, high viz, easy to pick out in the tree or on the ground. Easy to work with, knotting and handling. Used for both DRT and SRT, I'd buy it again. Currently my favorite rope. (Posted on 2/20/2015)

MOOOOOOOOO Review by Erick L

Let me start by saying I love this line. It's my first line (yes, others would probably be better for a first) and the climb is way better, and faster than others I've used (for both double footlocking, and single using double rope). I really like this rope, and would recommend it to anyone. I use a smaller diameter split tail, and as long as I don't use a double blakes setup, I've never had problems.But as I said, Mooooooo..... I milked it when I first got it, only an inch or so.First time climbing, it milked another few inches.When I started climbing more frequently, more milking each day.....This rope involves more milking than a lactating farmer running a milking machine on 500 head of cattle. I don't mind maintaining my stuff, but after ever climb? ehhh... But I bought this rope when it was still a "kernmantle" and has since changed to "double braid" so maybe it's improved on the whole milking issue? (Posted on 3/15/2012)

Love this rope for climbing, good knotability, great visibility for that ground guy who can't seem to keep track of your rope. I find the elasticity helps with fatigue during long days in the tree. My only issue is that I'm having large amounts of sheath slippage. Not a huge deal, but kind of frustrating. (Posted on 1/19/2012)

I bought this rope with the intentions of only using it for quick climbs. Now its my favorite rope. Easy knotability, easy to get around the most stubborn cottonwood bark, and easy on the hands and eyes. All around a great rope! (Posted on 10/28/2009)
