Edelweiss Canyon Static 9.6mm Rope Reviews:


I recently purchased a spool of this rope for canyoneering and tested it on the sharp granite of California. POSITIVES: The rope is light, well priced, supple enough for knot tying and easy to grip. It ran fairly fast on rappel for heavier folks as expected for a new rope. It sheds water well which is nice for long days in the canyons. The bright color is easy to see and good for photos too. We didn’t notice much bounce to this rope even given the fact that it is self-titled as “semi-static”. It’s supposed to be rated for a factor 1 fall or lower. It is not a lead climbing rope and we will definitely only be using it for canyoneering. I have seen very little wear so far – we shall see what happens after a few days in Zion. NEGATIVES: If you are new to canyoneering you might want a thicker rope or one that has a more protective sheath. This one has had no issues to date. OTHER NOTES: The manufacturer states you should soak the rope in water and let it dry fully before first use because it will shrink up to 5%.

The title says it all....I use this light weight rope to run solo top-roping routes with toothed devices i.e. ascender/mini traxion. Has a nice feel to the rope and feeds well. highly recommended.

I use for canyoneering and I have no complaints so far. Just make sure you soak it before you take it out and use it.
