An ultralight half rope with a sleek diameter. Use half ropes in pairs to clip alternating pieces of pro, reduce drag on wandering pitches, provide extra safety from falling rock and ice, and permit full-length rappels. These can also be used singly for glacier travel or ski tours.
- Superdry means both sheath and core are treated to protect against water and dirt, making for a long-lasting rope.
- Teflon finish coats each yarn and allows the individual fibres to glide over each other, reducing internal friction and fully utilizing each yarn when loaded, for extra durability.
- Comes lap-coiled by the factory, so ready to climb.
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||No|
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.
