Need a rope bag? Go to Ikea

 

If you’re planning on getting in a lot of routes in one day at the crag, using a rope bag is a great idea. There’s no need to continuously coil and uncoil your rope between routes, just flake it into the bag and it’s ready to go, feeding out perfectly and kept out of the dust.  

There are a lot of fancy and a bit expensive rope bags out there, but the $1, big, blue, heavy duty plastic bag from IKEA works great. It’s big enough to hold a 70 meter rope, has stout handles, and has just that touch of dirt bag to it to give you a few style points.
