Just look 10 little posts below yours in the equipment section. Or search "make rope" and it's # 10 in the search results.

As a substitute to a 15' climbing rope (and something that is actually practical to fit in your gym bag), I bought 6 ft. of one inch rough hemp rope. I burned and duct taped the ends to avoid fraying and then folded it over itself until I have about an 18 inch section that has four lengths of rope folded over themselves. I throw that over any pull-up bar or bathroom door in a hotel and voila...a decent sub for rope climbs. I do 8-10 reps alternating sides on each rep to simulate one rope climb.
