Accessory Cord (Prusik Cord)


Accessory cord is kind of the catch-all rope for everything except life-safety applications. Use it for making prusik loops for bare bones ascending, autoblocks, foot loops for mechanical ascenders, cowstails, slings, anchor rigging, or pull cords.

The accessory cord pictured to the right is 6mm BlueWater cord. It has a tensile strength of 1888 pounds and cost me $19.84 for 100 feet in 2012.
