About Us

We are Sterling. We are climbers, adventurers, engineers and entrepreneurs. We design and produce the world’s finest ropes, hardware and gear that enable climbers to confront challenging conditions.

Now in our third decade, Sterling continues to grow and diversify. We have become more than just a manufacturer of ropes; we are recognized by customers as experts in engineering, technology and techniques and are making strategic investments in product development and educational resources. If you are an alpinist, arborist, firefighter, rope access technician or tower maintenance worker, Sterling is and has been a go-to partner for world-class gear and real-world knowhow.


Proudly made in the USA.

This formula is what makes us tick:

Engineers design. Craftsmen build. Climbers climb, workers work and provide real world feedback to R&D and production. The process repeats itself, and there’s no end in sight.

What is Limited Availability?

We are a US manufacturer and we keep a limited supply of select products in inventory. When your order is entered, our factory will check to see if we can ship right away or, if not, we’ll set to work to build your Sterling equipment to exacting standards. We appreciate your patience and we will contact you to confirm we’ve received your order and to let you know when it is expected to ship.
