I know, I know, you can buy cordellete cheaper by the spool, but at this price and pre-cut to a perfect backcountry length, this was too good a deal to pass up. My order is bright green; it stands out from my other, similarly sized ropes and cordelletes. Can cut segments as needed - cheap enough to leave behind if all else fails - and just the right diameter for snow and alpine. Should have one of these for each member of your climbing party.
I didnt use this what it was intended for but to stretch a goatskin drumhead over an African drum. I needed a thin very low-stretch high-quality cord that was essentially the same quality as climbing rope because those drums are under such high tension.
