Best Sport Rope.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This rope is a work horse. I always here people rag on this rope because it only gets 6 falls. However, the sheath on this thing is bomber! it is by far the most durable solid sheath on the market. In the long run, this rope lasts longer than other ropes with more fall ratings. I have used this same rope for about 3 years of solid 3 to 4 times a week hard sport climbing. The rope's manufacture recommends retiring it much earlier than that. I inspect this thing all the time and it truly lasts for a long time. I just got a second one with this dry treatment and will never get anything other than a dry treated Sterling rope. Great product, takes big whippers, clips very nicely, looks super rad and hold's up.
Another note to mention is people tend to complain about how dirty these things get. I have found with using the GRI GRI 2 that is not an issue. Get the new GRI GRI as it handles much better with these range of ropes. The dirt is much easier to clean that the original, thus eliminating the dirty issue.
