Sterling Snake Bite Green Static Rope 200ft Grizzly — Spliced 10mm
With the growing number of climbers switching to SRT, Single Rope Technique, there is a need of a good low-stretch climbing line. With a 0.63% stretch, Sterling's HTP Snake Bite® Bright Green is the answer.
After two remarkable climbs in West Coast giants Sequoiadendron giganteum (giant sequoia) and Sequoia sempervirens (coast redwood) with Dr. Steve Sillett, it became clear that what I thought was the best single rope technique (SRT) ascent line wasn't. Sillett proved that Sterling Rope Company's high-tenacity polyester (HTP) had the least stretch of four top lines on the market. With that, SHERRILLtree contracted Sterling to braid the ultimate camouflaged SRT line that they aptly named Snakebite®.
