Where is the rope stored, and how long has it been there? If it is brand new I would return it, it's just not worth risking. If it were pants or something I would just throw them in the wash- but a rope. . no way.
Looking at the picture it looks like mold (or chalk, but I kind of ruled that out), I worked in a shop that kept gear in an old damp basement for ages if inventory wasn't moving. In some cases packaging or product would end up destroyed or defective.

It is in the factory coil still. New. Sterling responded. It is the dry treatment and just an example of it being overly applied and not curing properly before being bagged. They have already offered to replace it for free.

+1 for Sterling's great customer service. I already loved their ropes.

Although you already have your answer I have ropes that get that from dry sap running through a biner. Living in the rockies, all your ropes eventually get some sap on them.

"I have ropes that get that from dry sap running through a biner".



I was unaware that the Dry treatment for ropes was SAP.

From now on I am buying NON TREATED ropes and just heading out to the South Platte for a SAP TREATMENT.

Only saps pay extra for dry treatments. What you need is spooge-treated ropes.

So I have had ropes that have gotten sap on them, then it turns white when dry and run through a biner or belay device...but PLEASE let me know if your sap treatment idea works. I can stop buying treated ropes. Hate to think this whole time I've been wasting my money.
