Frays easily; poor quality

Purchased this rope in May, for sport climbing in Boulder Canyon. It's now October and there's significant fraying in several places. We climb maybe once a week, so I'd guess about 16-20 days so far, but switch back and forth with another rope, a BlueWater rope, that's two years older and shows none of the same wear. I'm actually going to have to retire this rope in one season, and I've never had to do that before. Haven't climbed any harder or sharper (generally rap down, and always keep an eye on sharp edges). I babied this rope, but it didn't help. No more Mammut ropes for me. I recommend you look elsewhere!
