Topic - Cheap Rope?

Patrik333 on 18 Aug 2012
Hey,

-I'm a bit short on money so I can't afford 120 climbing ropes.

-I have a harness and rock shoes already (though I'm not sure if they still fit!)

-I've been bored a lot and I want to go tree climbing / make rope swings / go top-rope climbing / other easy stuff that needs a rope.

-I want to find a rope that is strong enough to hold my weight (~120kg atm, but I'm on a diet!) but not necessarily be strong enough to take falls (as I won't plan to take any big falls on it if I'm top roping etc.)

Anyone got ideas? Did anyone used to be a scout, and remember using that blue rope? If I got some of that and doubled it up for extra precaution, would that be safe?

Cheers.
