The Wilderness Shop Box Hill

There is so much rock climbing gear in a climbers’ rack, but the one thing all those pieces have in common is that they are designed to connect you to your rope. Should you ever need it your rope is there to save your life, but most of the time climbers just need a rope that handles well and doesn’t create too much friction. The Wilderness Shop stock a wide range of  50m, 60m and 70m dynamic ropes from Sterling and Edelrid from 9.2mm up to 11mm. We also stock Melbourne’s largest range of high quality static rope from 1.5mm to 11mm, as well as webbing, shock cord and other bits and pieces which are all available by the metre.


Dynamic Ropes


Sterling Fusion Nano IX

Sterling Evo Velocity
9.8mm (60m / 70m)

The Nano 9.0mm, with its super skinny construction offers high end performance and long term durability on extreme onsights, redpoints, and alpine routes.

Just the right amount of stiffness, so your rope doesn't flop during critical clips and its silky smooth sheath withstands abrasion and slides effortlessly to reduce rope drag. This is the rope of choice for Chris Sharma and is what he uses for working the toughest routes. A dry-treated version is available in 60m.
