Do not buy.

These ropes are bad. The very first time I used them the sheath tore exposing the core of the ropes. This was from normal wear and tear - no falls or sharp edges. I sent the damaged ropes back to Petzl for warranty and they could not offer me anything; not even covering the shipping cost for the return. I now learned that other people have had similar problems with Petzl ropes, so I recommend you avoid Petzl ropes altogether.

I agree with you 100%. This rope has been nothing but frustrating to use. After the first day out on these looked worn and the sheath constantly twists around the core causing tangles. Also with fraying just from normal use, no falls and no rubbing on rocks it makes me nervous everytime I would rap off of them. So I coiled a pair up and now its a mat for my front door. I would try the Mammut Phoenix ropes they are super durable and actually are rated better all around (falls, weight and strength) My rock and single ice ropes are all Mammut and are bomber.
