OK serously there are only about a billion uses for it. It's almost as good as duct tape. Some common ones... Wrap a boulder for an anchor, make a seat harness for canyoneering, make an etrier, cordelette, etc...


Edit to say:

How can someone that has posted 772 times to RC.com not know what to do with 20' of webbing??? :?

nah nah.. i mean i have all of that. but i think you mean a webolette... which i already have, but better. the presewn ones are much better and take up half as much size thanks to the loops on the ends.. i don't know what i'm looking for here but i just have absolutely no use for it it seems like and don't want to carry it around... i have too much webbing as it is. hell maybe i will just give it to you if i don't get any ideas. making runners out of it is a bitch.. i made two but the knots are just a hassle to deal with... ah well..

I did mean a cordelette. You can use webbing just like acc cord, it's just slightly more bulky.

However, you can surely cut it into a few pieces and use it to replace webbing on rap anchors.

If the knots are a hassle to deal with maybe you should practice your water knots with it. ;)

Honestly, just roll it up, put it away and don't worry about it. If you toss it or give it away, the next day is when you'll need it for something you haven't thought of.

Cheers.

yeah a cordelette made of webbing is a webolette... but the manufactured ones are so money, you should check them out. they have loops sewn on the ends so you only deal with four pieces rather than six at the tie in point and only need to carry about half as much material. i seriously have about 200 ft of webbing i can blow on replacing slings at rap anchors. do you find it easier to ascend a rope with cord or webbing? i've never tried it with webbing.. i was just looking for something more original to do w/it i guess.. no big deal

Cut it in half, make two 5ft slings out of it by taking each section to your local shoe repair guy (or gal) and asking him to stitch it together. Then, collect 3 random D biners, (it helps if two are the same) and then go to the store and buy an additional 45' of 1" tubular webbing and set yourself up a slackline between two trees. (about 35ft apart)

Yes it's fun.

Yes your neighbors will laugh at you.

Yes, they'll finally realize it's fun and ask you if they can try.

Yes, it's okay to tell them "no" if you don't like them or they regularly run over your rubbermade trash cans.

If you have too much as it is and you don't really need this extra length of webbing, i would suggest donating it to the local crag... there's bound to be a route or two with slung webbing for rap anchors, and there's bound some of that webbing in desperate need of replacement... it's nice to top out on a climb and see a fresh new piece of webbing up there ready to use... just a thought...

you'd think so, wouldn't you?? maybe i'll just carry it around until i can do that. the slackline is a good idea. i also decided i'll leave some gear at the top of a climb around christmas time, so maybe i'll just add this to that pile. good karma you know...

If you go camping in the desert (which you should), you can't stake your tent into the sand. You will need extra webbing to anchor your tent down with boulders.

You can make homemade etriers.

Or you can tie up your girlfriend.

make a pair of homemade chacos. find something for a sole, like a pair of cheap flip flops or mouse pads or at a junk yard or something. Then be creative and make an original pair of shoes...they might be ugly, but they'll make good conersation.

or make a bunch of bracelets, or a few necklaces. I have one friend who wears a webbing necklace in case he ever gets in trouble on the crag and needs something extra.

you could also make a belt using rap rings or old buckles from an old backback or something.

Go to your local climbing store and buy some clips or rings. You can make 6 or 7 belts and give them to your climbing budsat xmas or on birthdays.

Editied to correct alcohol induced errors.

use about 15' of it to tie her up. the extra 5' could be used to make a whip
(if you go for that sort of thing)

You could:
- weave a teacozy
- fashion a crude set of finger warmers
- make a tiny hammock
- construct a dog sled harness
- tie up your girlfriend
- tie up someone else's girlfriend
