The most important attribute of a cord used for Prusik hitches is consistency in handling, diameter and strength. Once you have determined the Prusik hitch that works best on your host rope, you want the same performance every time you replace it. CMC Rescue Prusik Cord has the right balance of suppleness for reliable activation, but is not so soft that it wears out rapidly. Made of 100% nylon with a torque-free, kernmantle construction, it comes in solid colors to help differentiate between cords designed for Prusik hitches and climber's accessory cords. Two color choices in both 7-mm and 8-mm diameters allow you to use a separate color for each length Prusik in a Tandem Prusik Belay System. Our 6-mm Prusik cord is also available in two colors. The 9-mm cord is the size preferred by rescuers who use cord for a Load-Releasing Hitch.
Cord is sold by the foot. Please contact customer support for maximum length available.
