/ random q about ropes
Not sure if this is the right place to post and a bit random but does anyone know what percentage of a rope’s strength is in its core?
cheers, do you know where this figure comes from?
Here's one source that corresponds with the above figure:

An interesting post Steve. An honest question: As some ropes now have a 'Unicore' construction, sheath and core bound together. Does that make a difference to 'core' strength calculation?
Prolly not by much.
the unicore is mostly to keep the rope more ’tight’ and have less/none shealt slippage.

Sorry, but there are too many inaccuracies in that source to make it trustworthy.
I wonder if the percentage might be different in ropes especially designed for indoor wall / centres, such as the Beal Wall Master. The outer is more hard wearing and thicker on these types of ropes.
Mate, the person had a question about ropes - it was answered, some additional material was found to collaborate - as far as I'm aware he's not building a legal case or gathering material for an investigation - feel free to spend a moment of your time constructively and find a source that meets your high expectations 😂
Cheers for all the responses guys much appreciated.
During summer 2019, more than 200 ascents of Corbetts were made by around 70 volunteers in aid of hillwalkers' charity Mountain Aid.
