We’ve added an amazingly bright 4th version of Poison Ivy, called Tropical Ivy, that features florescent oranges and greens, that simply cannot be done justice in a print photo. Tropical Ivy is perfect for those climbers that love Poison Ivy, but wanted an ultra-high visible rope. Consider that wish granted.

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.

Best rope ever!! Now in high-viz! Review by Arborman76
I had Poison Ivy for several years (loved it!) but it blended too well for use with the constant flow of new "groundies" we get where I work. Tropical Ivy gives me the reliable smooth running I was used to (I use either my Zig-Zag or a Hitch-climber setup) AND now the crew can see it better!! Great rope!! (Posted on 10/12/2016)

Sweet rope Review by MrJrGuy
Poison ivy is my favorite rope out there ! I love the tropical poison ivy, it is so bright and the colors are great. The rope feels really good in the hands, has no stretch at all , slides through crotches really nicely. I have had mine for over a year now and it's still good, this rope has lasted longer than any other I have had. It's the perfect size for mechanical ascenders . Definetly recommend this rope to anyone looking for a good climbing line. (Posted on 5/31/2016)
