Great Canyoneering Rope!

Short story is, we now only use our "other" rope on practice days on the rough crags, and use C-IV when running any canyons, wet or dry. Lightweight, very smooth, nice hand for tying a knot or stuffing in a rope bag, floats, and most importantly, doesn't heat up anywhere NEAR as much as any other rope we've used on rappels. It's more expensive than other canyon ropes if you buy a shorter or precut length, so just buy a full bolt and split it with a buddy. ... Updated 1/30/2014 - we've been using this rope extensively and the only note I would add is that the older the rope is (well, the more you beat it up!), it does seem to absorb more water and get bouncier when rappelling in class C canyons. Still my favorite rope by a long shot but maybe we'll get a segment of Canyon Pro for the really wet canyons.
