Dynamic rope
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A dynamic rope is a specially constructed, stretchable rope. This 'stretch' is what makes it 'dynamic', in contrast to a static rope that doesn't have any give when under load. By stretching under load, a dynamic rope will soften the impact of extreme stresses on it, such as falls, and lessens the likelihood of failure. This is particularly useful in rock climbing, where it can absorb much of the energy of a fall (referred to as a whipper amongst rock climbers).

Wow, not much thought went into that one!

You would think people would use their brains little bit more when they are doing something dangerous wouldn't you?

This is what rednecks do after they've jacked a pack full of climbing gear out of your truck.

Andy? How did buddy get up or down ? I don't see any ascenders. Were they lowered down so he could jug out ? Or did you have provision on one of the ropes to lower him down to terra firma ?

But that first clip?

Oy vey.
