The modern sport of rock climbing uses so-called “dynamic” rope, which stretches under load in an elastic manner to absorb the energy required to arrest a person in free fall without generating forces high enough to injure them.

“Static” ropes, used for example in caving, rappelling, and rescue applications, are designed for minimal stretch; they are not designed to arrest free falls. Keeping them away from sharp rock edges is imperative.
