I have a trip planned to Zion National Park and I will be doing a slot canyon. I also just bought a 60 meter rope. New England Equinox 60 m dry core (dynamic). Will I be alright to use the rope in the canyon even though it will get wet and possibly dirty? Will I still be able to use the rope or will it be compromised for outdoor climbing?
If you will be in water (which I assume you will, if you're going to Zion), use a static rope. Trust me. Dynamic rope gets extremely heavy when wet and you will regret having to hike out with a soaking wet rope on your back (I learned this the hard way).
