The Edelrid Aramid Cord Sling 6mm x 120cm is a super strong climbing sling made from synthetic fibers.
Despite looking a little retro, these sewn cord slings from Edelrid offer something different from the usual dyneema webbing climbing sling. For a start they are very strong (rated to 22kN) and much more abrasion resistant than dyneema. They are also far stiffer than dyneema webbing, making them great for poking through threads - particularly one handed whilst on the lead!
Aramid fibers are a class of heat-resistant, super strong synthetic fibers. For this reason, they are often used in aerospace and military applications as well as for ballistic rated body armour fabric - so they are extremely tough! A great addition to your climbing rack!
Excellent for threading through holes. You can make this slightly rigid and it feeds through holes much more easily and faster than dyneema/nylon slings. Very versatile, regret not having them on my rack earlier. Hard wearing too.
