The special braided core construction of the Tower is extremely flexible and robust, making it well suited for a life as a top rope and for the extremely dry and dusty conditions at a climbing gym. The unique core construction also reduces core herniation, which can occur due to excessive top roping.
With the EDELRID Dry Shield finish and Thermo Shield treatment the Tower still maintains the traditional characteristics of an EDELRID rope: suppleness, good handling, and abrasion resistance. This rope performs excellently outdoors as well. Comes on a roll of 100m
- Thermo Shield treatment for perfect handling
- Ideal for top roping and for indoor use - unique core construction also reduces core herniation, which can occur due to excessive top roping

About Thermo Shield
Thermo Shield is the standard finishing treatment that Edelrid apply to all their ropes to give them the famous EDELRID feel and handling characteristics. This thermal stabilizing process ensures that the core and sheath yarns are perfectly balanced. A special heat treatment first relaxes then shrinks the rope’s fibres. This harmonizes the individual yarns inside the rope and ensures that it remains compact and supple throughout its life. The result is a rope that does not shrink or quickly become stiff. Ropes that do not undergo a thermal stabilizing process often shrink and dry out more quickly. They tend to be stiffer than ropes that have been heat-treated.
