FRC Robotics Rules Clarification


In accordance to the rules of the 2017 FRC Robotics Competition, SteamWorks, there is a part of the competition where the robot has to climb a "rope" either brought in by teams or provided by the competition. My team and I were wondering if our rope could be a "tie-down ratchet strap" with velcro strips sewn in on both sides. 

If anyone could find clarification on the definition of a rope please let me know.
