The Covenant use a type of rope to rapidly descend from high places. These tethers are described as "slithering, plasticine ropes which glow ghostly blue". In 2552, during the Raid of Reach, teams of Sangheili used them to rappel down on the floor of the central room of the Menachite portal complex below Reach, to recover the Forerunner crystal from Dr. Halsey and the Spartans.
