Description

Show Description

An impressively durable 9.8mm line, custom made for MEC, that's relatively lightweight and has low impact force for a comfy catch. A firm in-hand feel makes clipping easy, and the smooth, tight sheath keeps drag low through gear and over rock. Comes with a hollow-braid Technora® cord to help you build a prusik or klemheist hitch for safety on rappels.

  • All-round rope 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.
  • Hollow Block is made of 6.8mm Technora High Modulus Polyamide fibres.

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.

Non-dry
Length 70m
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.
