Show Description

The Boa is a good rope for universal use. It's beefy enough for sport climbing and top roping, but skinny and supple enough that you won't mind carrying it in to the furthest route from the parking lot.

  • Thermo Shield treatment that gives it excellent handling properties and supple feel.
  • DuoTec middle mark uses a thin strand of tape to change the colour. So it's a bi-colour rope with no annoying lump at the middle where the colour changes.

Type Single (‹ 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.

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 62g/m
Diameter 9.8mm
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.
