NEW FOR 2014! 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 among the top four most important tools for work efficiency and comfort—the other three being the saddle, safety lanyard, and handsaw. Without good interaction among these tools and your hands, movement within the tree’s crown can be something less than elegant. Popular among several of the world’s leading competition-level climbers, Poison Ivy is not only versatile for all climbing styles, but it’s affordable for all climbing budgets, too.
Poison Ivy has a unique double-braid construction with kernmantle-like cover that stays round when pinched by camming mechanisms, yet it is unusually flexible and knot friendly. This construction delivers one of the most static (non-elastic) characteristics available in spliceable arborist rope, ideal for traditional climbers looking for limited “bounce” and especially attractive to SRT (single rope technique) climbers longing to abandon the need for two lines when doubled rope tasks are on the day’s agenda. Beefier to the grip than other ascender-friendly lines, Poison Ivy is still small enough to feed freely through mechanical devices like ascenders and descenders. Unlike other arborist climbing lines, Poison Ivy has no noticeable coating or fabric treatment to make the line feel tacky or slippery when new.Climbing Rope Specification Chart
