11 mm Max Wear™ PMI® Pit Rope


Considered the Gold Standard of caving ropes by recreational cavers and rescuers alike, PMI Pit Rope is one of the burliest and longest-lasting ropes available today. The Max-Wear sheath is designed to withstand the harshest of cave environments and makes ascending rope a breeze with its low elongation and compatibility with most, if not all, SRT climbing systems. This iconic rope stands the test of time, and will easily survive trip after trip being dragged through miles of cave passages and/or being rigged in raging waterfalls. While PMI Pit Rope is the original caver’s rope, don’t be fooled: it is also a perfect tool for anyone that needs an incredibly durable workhorse where abrasion, resistance and reliability are paramount.
