Came across this site during my 'productive' day http://www.gearjunkie.com/climbing-rope-creations/

Some awesome creations using old rope. I'm eyeing up my knackered old ab rope now. I like the look of the door mat.

Anyone else come up with interesting things to do with old climbing gear?

In reply to Infinite Granite: Made a rope mat recently. It's like knot tying meets the rubics cube. Make sure that you have a bottle of wine handy.

I cut my last old rope up, put knots in it and slung it over my chin up bar. Voila, i have TRX training suspension bands!

You make a hammock out of it too. There's a number of webpages on it.

It's usually just a rope net you lie in. You'll probably want some kind of "shuttle" to keep the extra wound around for the more initial passing-through.

Theres more info on that, also weaves for rugs, etc., in this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Ashley-Book-Knots-Clifford/dp/057109659X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368...

In reply to Infinite Granite: If anyone has any old rope they don't need I'd love it for my sons Scout troop. Will not be used for any climbing type purposes and a donation to MRT would be made. I'm in Huddersfield and would collect within reason.

Anyone have an idea how to make the wine holder one? I think it'd be quite an interesting one to make.
