Climbing Rope

Most people climbing in London won't need to purchase a rope as most of the centres provide them on top-roped sections. However if you are going to lead climb then you will need to provide you own. There are tons of different rope manufactures, lengths, thicknesses and treatment options and the right rope will depend on what type(s) of climbing you will be doing. If you're looking at buying a climbing rope we recommend that you do your research and don't always go for the cheapest option
