I believe there are static and dynamic climbing ropes. I have a bunch of
dynamic ropes that I have used for rock climbing and I've also used them for
working on my roof. They do have some give to them. For tower work, though,
I stick to an arressting lanyard. As good a job I may think I can do on
knots, I'd rather trust something made for the specific purpose of
tower/scaffold type work.
