Ice/alpine climber's 1st choice
The Petzl Dragonfly is a light weight half-rope that excels on long ice / mixed routes and alpine peaks where weight savings is critical and frozen ropes are not an option. The tightly woven, single-pick sheath coupled with dry treatment on both sheath and core create a rope that is exceptionally good at shedding water. Even after long days of ice climbing in wet conditions the ropes fared well. The ropes have proven durable while ice climbing, but I have climbed little rock with them. My inclination for rock-specific climbing is to go with a thicker, more durable rope(s). The Petzl Dragonfly's are my first choice when wanting the ability to rappel a full rope length while counting every ounce.
