Edelrid 60m 9.8 Dynamic Rope for sale

For Sale:



Edelrid Eagle 9.8mm Diameter Pro Line
Dynamic Rope
Dry core
60m
Bi-Colour (see different patterns in photo)
Colour Magenta
Used on only 3 climbs never taken a fall, no fraying, no abrasions.


RRP $489.95

Asking Price: $280

I purchased this when I was living in Sydney, climbing in the gym and wanting to get outdoors. I did some outdoor climbing, but mainly with my partner's rope. As mentioned above, this rope is in as-new condition, as it has only been used for 3 climbs (all of 15-20m). I have since moved to Port Macquarie, and there is absolutely no outdoor climbing out here :(.

PM me for further details.

Thanks :)

Sorry I'm not trying to be a bastard, but this rope was in Paddy Palin for $280 brand new... I certainly hope you didn't pay the RRP for it.

This seems a bit steep; the current Australian RRP for the single colour version is $299.95!

To be fair to the OP the bicolour adds a fair bit to the price, but I found a listing for $339 without too much effort. It looks like that rope's been replaced by the Heron, which is slightly lighter and more durable.

Given the number of places you can pick up a brand new 60m rope for around $200 I suspect Bundy's offer might be about as good as you're going to get.

So $120 - going once . . .

Don't sell your rope.

I lived in Port last year and while it's pretty bleak from a climbing point of view it's not a total write off. There is day trip-able climbing in Buladelah, good for a bunch of trips. I climbed some surprisingly fun single pitch sport routes there.

And if you're up for a weekend trip, drive 2 hrs north to the areas around Coffs, I never went there but they look like they have potential.

If you're really keen, outside Wauchope there are toprope-able cliffs at Bago Bluff up to 40+ m in height. Sadly the rock there (and all around Port) is this shitty conglomerate stuff. When damp it falls apart in your hands however when baked dry, as in the north facing cliffs it's totally climbable. I wouldn't trust it to hold a bolt though, hence top roping...

I drove hundreds of kilometres around Port looking for climbing while I was there and the best options I reckon are on Big Nellie in Coorabakh NP and this outcrop i scoped out at grid ref: -31.706038, 152.507998 also in Coorabakh NP.

Now I haven't actually laid hands on either of these but I know Big Nellie is made of granite not conglomerate which has to be worth something and David, a local GP who runs the climbing gym in Port mentioned something about there being old bolts on it.

I drove pretty close to the outcrop at that grid reference above and it's very large, over 50 m i'd guess and vertical. But it's about a 40 min bush bash up the hill from the road to reach it and I ran out of light.

There is heaps of rock in Coorabakh NP. Take a drive along Coopernook Forest Way, Newbys Creek Rd and Peninsula Rd. At any point you can pull over, walk a few hundred metres off the road and find cliffs. Despite the crap rock I reckon there must be some worthwhile climbing hidden there somewhere.

There are about 400 routes at bulahdelah, about 10 % trad, the rest sports with a large concentration in grades between 20 to 26. I guess it is a 2 hour drive, staying in town is now nice as the freeway has been diverted so it's quiet. The new edition of the hunter valley guide book by Tim Haasnoot outlines a lot of these climbs, and if I ever get a few rest days there should be some free online stuff soon. Also a lot of the climbs are detailed on crag.com, though it's hard to find your way around without a guide.
Also plenty of climbing around Coffs Harbour, and a few routes at gloucester.

Even if you don't visit any of the places Marssan mentioned you might get a sudden urge to escape to Arapiles, The Blue Mtns, Frog or even to Hobart to hang it on that new trad line - Tassie's hardest - on the Organ Pipes for a month or two. ;-)
Seriously though, what you are going to get for the thing makes keeping it, looking at it occasionally and dreaming of routes to do the only viable option. In fact, I'd suggest buying a guide book to a new area and putting it by the bedside to look at kick start those dreams.

Wow, I didn't realise how much of a storm this would create.

I admit that I have not checked the RRP for a while - and the rope has been sitting in the cupboard for some time now.

When I did buy it (in 2011), the RRP was really steep because of the bi-colour and dricore. but admittedly, I did buy it for $350 straight from Outdoor agencies because they were my client at the time.

As for the climbing in the area, I do have a few friends who have their own ropes, so if I do explore some of the outdoor areas around, I'll probably go with them.

After looking at the ODA catalogue - with the $299 RRP, I'm happy to settle for $120 plus shipping...

Macciza, still interested?
