Ropes

The Wilderness Shop Box Hill

There is so much rock climbing gear in a climbers’ rack, but the one thing all those pieces have in common is that they are designed to connect you to your rope. Should you ever need it your rope is there to save your life, but most of the time climbers just need a rope that handles well and doesn’t create too much friction. The Wilderness Shop stock a wide range of  50m, 60m and 70m dynamic ropes from Sterling and Roca from 9.2mm up to 11mm. We also stock Melbourne’s largest range of high quality static rope from 1.5mm to 11mm, as well as webbing, shock cord and other bits and pieces which are all available by the metre

Sterling Fusion Ion 9.4mm 
(60m)

The Nano 9.2mm, with its super skinny construction offers high end performance and long term durability on extreme onsights, redpoints, and alpine routes. NOTE: Due to these ropes' small diameters, it is recommended they only be used for onsights, redpoints, and NOT for top-roping or working of routes. 

Thin, but not scary thin, high performance and lightweight climbing rope for experienced sport and trad climbers. Despite its narrow diameter the rope boasts an UIAA fall rating of 5 and an impact force of 8.1kN. The Ion2 weighs only 57 grams per meter and features  DryCore construction .

Sterling Marathon  10.1mm
(50m / 60m / 70m)

Just the right amount of stiffness, so your rope doesn't flop during critical clips and its silky smooth sheath withstands abrasion and slides effortlessly to reduce rope drag. This is the rope of choice for Chris Sharma and is what he uses for working the toughest routes.

The Marathon Pro can easily be described as the best all around rope for durability and handling. Marathon series are constructed with a thicker sheath for durability and long lasting performance. It features a low impact force and as with all of Sterling ropes, DryCore.

Sterling Marathon 10.4mm
(50m / 60m)

Great value all round climbing rope. The 10.2mm diameter is thin enough to easily pay out rope while still thick enough to provide durability.

At 10.4mm, the Sport is designed to be light and versatile, yet still very durable with great handling. This mid-size Marathon also features the Sterling DryCore. Marathon series are constructed with a thicker sheath for durability and long lasting performance.

The Ultra 10.7mm is well known for its burliness. The Ultra is great for top-roping,  challenge courses, industrial work and training where a rope will run  through many cycles. Marathon series are constructed with a thicker sheath for durability and long lasting performance.

The classic rope par excellence for those seeking maximum safety. Recommended for professional guides, scout groups and top-ropers.
