Climbing lines designed specifically for MRS/DRS (Moving Rope Systems) are subjected to more abrasion than ropes used in Stationary Rope or Single Rope climbing systems. Look for ropes with lower sleeve strand counts and thicker individual strands for the best durability.
Not all MRS ropes are suitable for all MRS climbing systems. For instance, 12 and 16-strand ropes tend to work better with a Blake’s hitch or Tautline hitch. A 24-strand rope will work considerably better with mechanical devices such as the ZigZag or Spiderjack.
Climbing lines that are used in SRS (Stationary Rope or Single Rope Systems) should be carefully selected for compatibility with the system being used. Friction based SRS setups can benefit from conventional 24-strand covers, where mechanical climbing systems like a Rope-Runner or Akimbo excel on 48-strand climbing lines. Friction is less of an issue in SRS climbing. Smoother jackets provide substantial performance benefits over 12 and 16-strand climbing lines.
Always match hardware with manufacturer approved ropes, and test hitches for holding ability close to the ground.
