Re: 1" Climbing rope doable?

well, crap....

OK, but I did just realize, that raw rope from them won't have any mounting, it's just a rope, so I'd have to fashion something to attach/loop it. At least my (deep breath) hours of braiding will get me a loop...

Eye splice... 1.5" manila rope eye splice should take about 15min even for someone looking it up on youtube.

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.
