Show Description

Beal® puts emphasis on building ropes that reduce overall impact forces. This moderately lightweight, thin rope is great for climbing longer pitches. The thin diameter reduces rope-drag, but does compromise slice-resistance and long-term durability. This rope also features Beal’s Dry Cover treatment. This is not a conventional dry treatment but rather a chemical coating added to the sheath to protect against grit, grime, heat, and rubbing.

  • Safe Control indicates the centre point by changing the weave design mid sheath.
  • Unicore construction bonds the sheath and core so there should never be any sheath slippage.
  • DryCover treatment increases longevity but is not well-suited to ice climbing or alpine terrain.
  • Beal plants a tree for every rope sold.

Ideal for Rock climbing
Type Single (9.9mm - 9.6mm)

Dry ropes have a water-resistant treatment on both core and sheath. Dry (UIAA certified) ropes have both core and sheath treated, plus meet the UIAA Water Repellent standard by passing a stringent test where a soaked rope cannot absorb more than 5% of the rope's weight.

  • 60m (60 Meter)
  • 70m (70 Meter)
Dynamic elongation

Maximum elongation in the first UIAA test fall, where a weight is attached to the rope and then dropped. Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.

Static elongation

In controlled tests, a weight is suspended from the rope (not dropped). Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.

Impact force

The amount of force, in kN, that the first UIAA fall puts on the falling object. Less impact force puts less force on the climber, belayer, and protection during a fall.

Linear weight 63g/m
Diameter 9.7mm
Halfway pattern change Yes
UIAA fall rating

Indicates the number of consecutive falls a rope withstood during testing in a controlled environment. The number is for reference only, and does not indicate the number of falls a rope will withstand during actual use or over its lifespan.
