Dealing with frays

Recommended Posts

Basically would like to know other people's preferences on how to deal with frays on their climbing line...

 

I've had my Yale blue tongue for a few months now and I've just christened it with its first fray (suspected barbwire) and I'd like to know how people go about frays, whether burn them down a bit or leave them or take them or what ever.

 

Any advice is great, thanks.

I would call that a pull rather than a fray. The jacket strands are a bit messed up but by and large aren't damaged. That can be sorted with a bit of time and effort with a dubbing needle.

Probably best not to burn smooth as that would leave a hard spot on the rope. If it is a pull just follow it around the rope pulling the slack out and distributing it out slowly. If it is partial strands pulled ,as treequip said, tuck the loose bits into the cover.

And your LOLER inspector isn't going to like it:laugh1:

like treequip said loler inspector wont like anything burned ( would be a straight fail of loler test), try work to the fibers back into the rope. Hard to see from the photos but if all those strands are slightly cut then it is probably going to fail a loler inspection anyway .
