Sterling Ropes has long been trusted as a manufacturer of top-quality climbing, access, and rescue lines, and now with Atlas they have delivered their first tree-rigging line.

Sterling Atlas is a double-braid tree rigging rope with a Polyester cover over a Nylon core. The Nylon core provides not only great strength but increased elasticity. This extra stretch helps to mitigate loads created when catching wood, and reduce peak forces.

Sterling Atlas has a great hand and a firm, round cross-section which has been designed to work excellently with bollards on the GRCS or Port-a-Wrap.

ANSI Z133-2017

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboricultural operations. Components of a rigging system must be used within their Working Load Limits.

This product is ANSI compliant when used within the manufacturer Working Load Limits.

A green log weight chart (found in the Samson Rigging Wheel) will aid in determining loads in tree rigging.

The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.

Rated: Excellent Review by: Ty C.

“Fantastic rigging line, I've used Atlas 1/2" and 9/16ths as my go-to light rigging line for a while now. Having previously used and worn out arborplex, promaster, and tree master lines doing removals with natural crotch rigging. Atlas has replaced all of those sending my old lines to be used to tie down tarps and secure my boat to the dock. This stuff rocks! Great hand that doesn't stiffen with use, it knots well and is not only abrasion resistant but it runs through the crotches of rough skinned trees quite nicely. I've convinced my other tree climber friends to switch to this rigging line from even stable braid to atlas. They love it. ”
