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®.
