I started my SRT journey on that rope.

It will work, and you’ll appreciate a more static rope when you get one.

It's entertaining trying it on rock climbing rope

I climbed Ddrt with a dynamic rock climbing rope and a shunt for a while. In some situations the bounce was even benefical. The stretch when i'd put my weight on the line would help my thrust up pretty hard when I did the body thrust. Different system though

It was all we had in the 70s but by mid 80s I came across army abseil rope, I'd never thought about SRT until reading here.
