Topic - is my rope still safe to use

neil9216 - on 14 Apr 2013
Hi

I have been out of the country for a year.
during that time my car has been in my parents garage and I have been using it to store my climbing gear and some other things.


My rope has been loosely coiled in a large bag(Ikea) and stored in the passenger foot well,

The rope is around 3 years old, it has been used mainly for indoor leading, and summer cragging and the odd mountain route, It has never held an outdoor fall and is in good condition.And there is nothing that could have came into contact with it while it has been in the car.

will the extreme temperature changes have had any adverse affect on the rope?

Is it still safe to use or should I bin it.

any info or advice will be greatly appreciated.

cheers

Neil
