    Hi all! I have been given a 150ft hank of Yale Scandere. This is a 48strand Kernmantle. Has anyone used this line yet? Pros cons? I've been climbing on poison ivy and tachyon mostly. The ivy is the only line I've tried with my RW. Any opinions and insight is appreciated!

    The Wrench is exactly what this line was designed for. You'll love it.

    Right? I felt loved. My friend one the name the rope contest and it was her prize. She decided to send it to me as a gift. I sent her a purple rope wrench last year and some other stuff.

    Either a room or in a tent. Scotch sounds good!

    I'm all for the scotch discussion, but I'm still over here dying over the Yale notice in the photo: "Removal by any other means will create a mess and make you angry."

    Literally my favorite thing about yale.
    The rope is fine, but that warning is gold.

    Thanks for this review, Lawrence! What is it about this rope that makes it so much better than the rest, if you don't mind my asking?

    Thanks in advance for any answers you choose to provide.
