Difference between spliced and braided

Recommended Posts



I have my CS38 coming up soon. In the kit essential requirements it's noted that I will need a climbing-braided arborist rope. I had always assumed braided ropes were used for rigging. I already have a spliced yale XTC Hedera 11.7mm climbing rope and thought this being correct. Obviously I will need to contact the company to find out though in the meantime can anyone tell me the differences as I'm still very new.

If you're providing your own kit you will need two ropes and both will have to be lolered or under 6 months with receipts. Nowt wrong with XTC though.
