Back in July we blogged about Christchurch climber Adam Hartshorne and his investment in the new Yale Imori 12mm climbing line.
Almost six months later Yale Imori (pronounced EEE-MOR-LEE) is finally available to New Zealand tree climbers (apart from Adam!).
As Steve Bullman states in the June ArbTalk review, Yale Imori will appeal to climbers looking for a light weight rope with enough bulk to feel good onthe hand - loosely translated, it's easier to grip. The weight of the rope is particularly noticeable if you are using advanced hitches like Valdotain,knut, Distel etc.
Treetools will have Yale Imori in-store over the next few weeks.
