Show Description

Compact, with great handling, and a good diameter for a cragging rope. Ideal for intermediate climbers looking to project routes and progress up grades.

  • Thermo fluid treatment stabilizes the sheath and keeps it compact for better handling.
  • No chemical treatments or dyes used in the construction.

Weight 3.66kg
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.

Length 60m
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 61g/m
Diameter 9.8mm
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.
