Direction Up is 24-strand climbing line from Edelrid in a full 1/2" (13mm) size. Like Samson's Vortex, Direction Up takes the 24-strand construction typically used for smaller lines (11mm) and uses it in a full-bodied line. This makes for light weight and high strength in an arborist climbing line with full grip. Direction Up is a solid choice for a high-performance arborist rope.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboriculutral operations.
Arborist climbing lines are required to have a minimum breaking strength of 5,400 lb (24 kN) when new, and should be no smaller than 1/2” (12.7mm) unless the employee has been trained in the use of smaller line (down to 7/16” / 11mm), and the line's working elongation should not exceed 7% at 540 lb load.
Direction Up 13mm rope meets ANSI Z133-2012 standards.
The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.
