Video: How to Choose a Climbing Rope

Yesterday, we shared a video from REI on how to select a climbing helmet for use in your outdoor adventures. Hot on the heels of that clip comes this one, which provides some good insights into another important piece of gear that climbers need to select carefully –– their rope. You would think that here wouldn’t be much nuisance involved in such a purchase, but as it turns out, there are more things to consider than you might expect. Once again, this some valuable information for beginners and veterans alike.
