How Climbing Ropes Are Made

Take a look behind-the-scenes at their factory in Allgäu, Germany to see how climbing ropes are made, from nylon fiber to finished product. Brand manager Carsten von Birckhahn explains the process. Sadly, Carsten passed away in a paragliding accident this July. This video series is dedicated to him. By Weigh My Rack.
