This 24-strand climbing line is a true 1/2" (12.7 mm) and is the lightest premium climbing line of its size available. The large and comfortable braid of Vortex makes it extremely comfortable in the hand and makes gripping the rope a pleasant undertaking unlike smaller lines. Like its counterpart Velocity (but a little larger for easy handling) - Vortex has excellent knot-holding ability, works well with hardware, and is great for footlocking. Compared to ropes of similar size, Vortex has 25–30% lower elongation when used at the same load which means it will stretch less while climbing.120' and 150' hanks are spliced in one end of the rope to help streamline your climbing system
600' spools are not spliced.
