Great rope, didn't last long
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As others have stated, this is a supple rope that goes through a grigri nicely and is easy to manage. Right out of the box it doesn't feel stiff at all, no break in time. It does pick up dirt very easily though. I loved this rope, but I've only had it 11 months and now have to get a new one. There's a small tear in the sheath and the core is now exposed. Was this from rope drag over some rough rock? Admittedly, I've climbed several routes repeatedly where this might have caused the issue, but the rest of the rope is still in good shape. Since the tear is only in one small spot, it leads me to believe it was one single event that caused the tear, not repeated abuse. Hmmm, not sure what to think. It's a great rope and this could be just a fluke thing. This will be my third rope, so I think I'll purchase a different brand this time just to try something different for comparison. Still love Petzl products and this rope is pretty sweet.
