This item is no longer stocked, but may be available by special order.

13mm (1/2”) • 24-strand • 7,643 lb (34 kN) MBS / 26 kN with Sewn Termination • 2.8% elongation at 10% ABS • 7.7 lb. per 100’ • sewn eyes only

Direction Up is 24-strand climbing line from Edelrid in a full 1/2" (13mm) size. Like Samson's Vortex, Direction Up takes the 24-strand construction typically used for smaller lines (11mm) and uses it in a full-bodied line. This makes for light weight and high strength in an Arborist Climbing Rope with full grip. Direction Up is a solid choice for a high-performance arborist rope.

ANSI Z133-2017

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboricultural operations.

Arborist Climbing Ropes are required to have a minimum breaking strength of 5,400 lb (24 kN) when new, and should be no smaller than 1/2” (12.7mm) unless the employee has been trained in the use of smaller line (down to 7/16” / 11mm), and the line's working elongation should not exceed 7% at 540 lb load.

Direction Up 13mm rope meets ANSI Z133-2017 standards.

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