Do climbing ropes require any maintenance?
Climbing ropes are very durable and will stand up to rugged use. How long your ropes will last before replacemnts depends on your program use.
For instance, some programs use one rope, two ropes, others use four or more. Due ro frequent use,
the traffic on a single may necessitate earlier replacement. Also, upper grade levels and team use will facilitate wear, particularly
on the bottom half od the rope.
Rope knots placed on the rope for climbing assistance will facilitate wear due to increased friction points while climbing.
Please note: manila ropes can be susceptible to mildew and "dry rot" in humid environments. Please inspect periodically and replace if defected. Never allow ropes to rub against other objects. Climbing ropes
are relatively inexpensive and other than avoiding these conditions, one shoudl expect to replace climbing ropes periodically. Hardware and rope inspection should take place before and after each use.
