I'm looking for some advice about some climbing rope I was recently given. A close friend of mine that I have known for about 10 years and is my next door neighbor had a spool that had 600 feet of climbing rope on it. He gave it to me, it has NEVER been used, however he purchased it in 1998. He bought it and put it on a shelf located at the front of his garage and ended up not using it. He had intentions of using it due to being Special Forces but didn't. His garage is a relatively clean environment but I went ahead and removed the first layer of rope (about 130 feet) because he does have motorcycles that he very occasionally starts up in the garage. Should I ever use this rope to climb? I do mostly top roping. Rope is 7/16 blue water, very nice stuff. Even feels brand knew, for sure has never been taken off the spool.

Hi. I think you may have meant to post this on the Gear Guy forum. This forum is for medical related questions.

Cheers.
