Tommy Caldwell und EDELRID: a sustainable partnership

Together we can do more for the environment

Tommy is a passionate climber and environmentalist. We share both passions with Tommy and do not only develop ropes together but also like to think of (new) ways to protect our planet.

For this reason, we have decided to donate 1% of the worldwide turnover from the sale of this rope to the organization POW (Protect Our Winters).

A lot of small steps from a lot of people can have a huge impact. With the purchase of this rope you make a decisive contribution to make the earth a better planet.

Robust workhorse with PFC-free Eco Dry coating

This rope was developed in cooperation with big-wall legend Tommy Caldwell. A genuine workhorse with a particularly abrasion-resistant sheath construction. Not only is it light and easy to handle but, thanks to our PFC-free Eco Dry coating, it is also permanently water repellent and dirt resistant. The perfect rope for big walls and demanding tours.

As a big-wall climber, you have to be able to rely 100% on your rope. In an emergency, it is the lifesaving umbilical cord that connects you to the world away from the wall.

Noone knows this better than big-wall legend and EDELRID ambassador Tommy Caldwell, with whom we developed this rope. The aim of this collaboration was to develop a rope that is not only extremely robust and abrasion resistant but also light and easy to handle. It also needed to be produced in a sustainable manner that conserves resources. After initially causing our developers major headaches, these stipulations were ultimately met to perfection in the form of the TOMMY CALDWELL ECO DRY CT 9.3 MM.

Both we and Tommy were particularly committed to ensuring that the rope can be produced in as environmentally-friendly and resource-conserving a manner as possible. This made our Eco Dry coating the only choice for finishing the rope. The PFC-free coating does not use any perfluorinated or polyfluorinated chemicals, which are harmful to humans and the environment, and absorbs almost no water (water absorption capacity < 2%, UIAA Dry Standard). Like all our ropes, the TOMMY CALDWELL ECO DRY CT 9.3 MM is bluesign® certified.
