Double Braid This molten-hot addition to the SHERRILLtree lineup is built by New England Rope and uses the new FlexiFirm Core Technology (trade name Tachyon) to deliver climbers a unique, low-stretch, tough-skinned, double-braid that stays round and firm under load.
Unlike any double braid before it, LAVA contains a unique third "magmastrand" that provides spectacular support and density to both core and mantle. LAVA provides excellent traction to both split-tails and ascenders, resulting in flawless performance of doubled rope (traditional) and single rope climbing techniques. LAVA flows smoothly through a wide array of modern mechanical devices thanks to its small size andsleek jacket. LAVA tips my personal micrometer at 11.5 mm, and natives are sure to praise the gods for another Poison Ivy-like line, but one that can be eye-spliced at both ends!
Within each linear foot of LAVA SHERRILLtree deep blue-colored mantle burst glowing bright flecks of either hot orange or bright lime, delivering a distinctive and unique look that can be spotted or called for from great distances.
