Re: 1" Climbing rope doable?
I have braided a few 20' ropes out of hardware store poly rope. I even made a short one to hang from the tree in my yard so the dogs can get their pull on.
They are just fine for climbing but it takes a while to complete one. If I needed another rope I would find an affordable online dealer of manila rope and order 25 feet or so and splice a loop into it. Buck fifty nine a foot at Knot and Rope Supply.
