Perfect for long alpine routes

Tieing into a rope and setting out into the unknown is part of the experience which seals the friendships that last a lifetime.

That rope is your lifeline, so why not have two! Wenden is a pure half rope, as the name suggests you need two of them to complete your system. Using two half ropes on long, multi-pitch routes has many advantages; you can clip alternate gear helping to reduce friction and reduce rope drag on routes the weave around. You can also make longer abseils by tieing the two ropes together. On many alpine routes an abseil descent will be the only way off, the route of descent may not be the same route as the ascent and will have specific distances between abseil points.

Wenden is dry treated before fabrication so every fibre is coated to prevent water absorption, something that will make your life just a little bit easier when you are caught in your first storm! That said, as you are hanging from your belay, shivering and wishing you took a proper waterproof, it probably will not be the first thing on your mind... but the dry treatment also enhances handling especially in wet or cold conditions.

We sell Wenden in 50 and 60 metre lengths giving you the choice to save weight or tackle longer pitches. Make sure you select two different colours to avoid confusion when you are climbing!

Glossary

Half rope
To be used in pairs (and sometimes called double ropes). The idea is that you clip each rope independently. They are ideal for all year round mountain use, especially on ice and large mountain routes where the terrain zigzags and there is the possibility that you may need to abseil.

Tot Sec
A dry treatment that covers every filament of both the sheath and core of the rope before fabrication. This makes it an ideal choice for use in more extreme winter conditions, helping to prevent water absorption and ropes icing up. The Tot Sec treatment enhances rope handling characteristics in wet/cold conditions and will also extend the life-span of the rope.

Secure Low Shock
A rope with the optimum balance between impact force and dynamic elongation.

Featherweight
A rope with a good weight to diameter ratio.
