We love winter here at Terradrift. Maybe because we don’t actually live in a part of the country with an actual winter (absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that), maybe because we’re still just kids at heart and never grew out of wanting to play in the snow…who knows? But one thing’s for sure: we don’t enjoy being cold. Especially me. I’m a tiny human with no built-in insulation and I get real cold real fast. The solution?

After all, a rope’s job is literally to save your life; you don’t want some weathered length of cord that might not be able to handle the shock of a fall or two. But most climbing rope, like harnesses, isn’t sustainable, so eco-conscious climbers may feel just a pang of guilt every time they have to buy another 60 meters of brand new rope (and what to do with the old one?!). Not anymore. Because these sustainable climbing ropes prove form, function and sustainability (uh, also safety) can go hand-in hand.
