good stuff though.
I hope when you say climbing rope you actually mean static cord such as is used in repelling. All good climbing rope is dynamic and streches when under stress to reduce the force absorbed by falling climber. It is usually rated for only a few falls as it weakens and lengthens with each fall. If it is truely climbing rope and you've used it to pull down mequite trees, throw it out before it breaks on you.
