A bit of gray in the middle.
The difference between dynamic ropes and static ropes is that dynamic ropes can take the weight of climbers falling, whereas static ropes cannot. Although it's never a good idea to test this black-and-white rule, Edelrid tested the Rap Line II Static Rope to handle two falls like a twin rope would. That doesn't mean you should lead climb with a rope like this, but this rope can provide some added peace of mind when mistakes are made on the mountain, and you somehow shock the rope in such a way that most static lines can't deal with.
