Ropes are not all the same.  Static ropes have minimal stretching and are used for tying, and hauling.  Dynamic ropes are used for climbing and stretch more to withstand falls.  The weak spot in most ropes is the knot.  Angles, kinks, and knots, stress the fibers unevenly and weaken rope.  Some knots weaken some rope to as little as 40% of its rated strength.

Tree climbers use "static" ropes, which lack the stretchiness of "dynamic" ropes used to arrest falls in rock climbing. This Yale Poison Ivy rope is 11.7 mm in diameter and has a rated tensile strength of 6500 pounds. The Blake's Hitch seen in this photo is the central friction hitch in tree climbing. The hitch can move up and down the rope, but if the climber simply lets go, the hitch locks in place.
