Description

Show Description

An impressively durable 9.8mm line, that's relatively light and has low impact force. It has a solid, rather than noodley hand for easy clipping. The smooth, tight sheath creates less drag through gear and over rock. A popular workhorse rope for any rock or ice project.

  • Suits trad, sport or mixed climbing.
  • DryCore treatment on core yarns reduces yarn-on-yarn abrasion and moisture absorption to maintain strength characteristics.
  • DryCoat protects from water absorption, which reduces weight, prevents freezing, and slows wear on the sheath.

Treatment

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.

Dry
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.

26.4%
Static elongation

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

8.6%
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.

8.8kN
Linear weight 62g/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.
