I've been bouldering for a while and I am now starting to get into trad and sport climbing. Would this be a good rope to start with?

With all the rope tech out there, it can get a bit overwhelming. All you really need for beginner trad and sport is a 10+mm rope that's at least 60m in length. From there, everything is gravy.

Once you become more experienced, you may find that you prefer your rope to handle a certain way - stiff or supple - or that you want your rope to be lighter. You may also find that ropes that tell you where the center is, via a mark or a weave change, are handy.
