Description

Show Description

A rope that does everything on the rock, this workhorse hits the 9.8mm sweet spot. It offers a balance of durability and weight to suit sport, trad or multipitch lines. A firm in-hand feel makes clipping easy and smooth.

  • All-around features suit cragging or multi-pitch climbing.
  • DryCore treatment on core yarns reduces yarn-on-yarn abrasion and moisture absorption, so your rope maintains its strength characteristics.
  • Middle mark increases safety and speed on rappels.
  • Tight sheath reduces drag through gear and over rock.

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.

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.
