/ Money For Old Rope Offer at George Fisher
Yes, as the headline suggests, were launching an initiative recycling used climbing ropes!
Any climber will recognise the problem.
You've happily been using a rope for a few years, it still looks in good nick but according to best practice it should now be retired.
But what do you do with it? You can't allow an old rope to be used in any safety-related application, but equally you don't want to throw it away. So it sits there gathering dust in the shed; and if you've been climbing for a few years it might be joining several others hundreds of metres of rope.
Now George Fisher in partnership with Green Peak Gear, Mammut UK and Sterling Ropes has put in place an initiative that solves the dilemma.
From 4 March the Money For Old Rope initiative means you can bring your old rope into George Fisher and you'll get a 15% discount on a new single rope, or pair of half ropes from either the Mammut or Sterling ranges in stock at the time.
