Great value for beginner to intermediate climbers who want a fully-featured rope with the improved safety and durability of a thicker diameter. The sheath is a one-over-one twill pattern that glides through protection, puts less friction on the rock, and stands up well to abrasive terrain. With a supple feel, an excellent hand, and minimal stretch, it’s a good choice for heavily working routes or projects, or for top rope sessions. Also great for climbers in the alpine or on big walls.
- The pattern changes at midpoint.
- Both core and sheath have a true dry treatment, suitable for wet conditions like alpine, big walls or ice.
|Type||Single (10mm ›)|
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.
Maximum elongation in the first UIAA test fall, where a weight is attached to the rope and then dropped. Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.
In controlled tests, a weight is suspended from the rope (not dropped). Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.
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.
|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.
