About BlueWater Ropes: BlueWater traces its roots to a family-owned business that began manufacturing ropes and cordage in 1903. Our modern history began in 1969 when we manufactured the first American-made kernmantle caving rope. This rope went on to become the now famous BlueWater II +PlusT. The standard in quality and durability. In 1975 we introduced the first synthetic low elongation rope for fire and industrial high-rise rescue. Synthetic nylon fiber was a radical departure from the norm of one inch manila ropes that were in use. We followed in 1982 with the first commercially available line of UIAA certified dynamic climbing ropes made in the U.S.A. These ropes rapidly gained popularity with climbers due to their unsurpassed quality and performance. Visit BlueWater Ropes at www.bluewaterropes.com.
