If its for rock climbing, yes, you want a dynamic climbing rope. If its for ascending the mast, you want a static rope. It's what we use when ascending out of caves, but you definitely don't want to take a fall on a static. You're not taking falls when ascending, if the system slips, get down and sort out the issue. I've climbed the mast with a dynamic rope... one of the most frustrating experiences I've had. It'll take you twice as long.
