I am no expert on the subject but there are two general types of climbing ropes, dynamic and static. Dynamic means that they have a lot of stretch so that if you fall, they will provide a lot of cushion. I think that they are capped at 40% stretch (they don't want you falling so far that you hit a ledge) but I don't know the load applied. Static lines do not stretch. The question that I have has to do with the number of cycles. Climbing ropes are rated in terms of the number of cycles (falls) they are rated for and the ratings are quite low.
