Awesome, thanks.

Re: 1" Climbing rope doable?

my 2 cents:

the 1'' might train the grip better. it is all about the technique and the benefits. when I was deployed I used a tow cable for a climbing rope if 15'' high. PR is 4 climbs in one minute.

I won't be using it for climbing. I want a heavy rope to tie off to my R3 and then do shoulder and arm work (waves and such).

The most cost-effective solution is the DIY 1.5" rope from my article in the Journal.

Does anyone have this PDF they would be willing to PM me? I'm looking to make one for our workout area at our Sheriffs Office. I don't have a CF subscription (obviously) and budget cuts say we cant buy a rope.

Thanks

The article is not free....coming here and asking for someone to burn you a copy is pretty lousy (and technically, illegal).

You know the Journal is only $25 a year for all the content you can ever possibly want?

I understand what your saying. I'm trying to figure it out for our Deputies, if it was for me I wouldn't ask.

I know there is a subscription fee, but like everyone money is tight, heck our agency wont foot the bill for a actual rope if that tells you anything.

On the flip side I know someone that takes the time to write the journal needs to get paid. I didn't think this board would be about making money,, if thats the case I'll go elsewhere.

Nobody here asked you for money. You asked for copyrighted material for free.

And if you have a problem with being expected to pay for copyrighted material, then, yep, you're in the wrong place.

Cheers,

Mark

How about I rephrase my request: May I borrow a copy of the article from someone?

Everyone has borrowed a book or magazine from someone else who paid for it. That is neither illegal or unethical I really fail to see what the big deal is.

Re: 1" Climbing rope doable?

An interesting approach, but you know as well as I do that there's really no way for someone to just loan you a digital copy of that article.

That said, I'll print a hard copy of it for you today. You're welcome to come by and read it whenever you get a chance.
