Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


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
