PDQAltair—

As a former climber, I'm fairly familiar with modern lines, both sailing and climbing. Most gym climbing ropes are relatively short, since the climbs are somewhat constricted in their height. Most would not be suitable for use as anchor rodes, due to their length.

The longer ropes that might be suitable for anchor rode use are not generally used in an indoor or controlled climbing environment—and they most certainly could have been exposed to loads greater than 500 lbs.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
