Over the past year, this rope has taken on sport, trad, and ice climbing in stride. Lots of positive comments heard from friends with gear envy at the crags, especially about the duodess feature, and the lightweight feel that is easy on the hands (soft). The 9.5mm diameter glides nicely through belay devices and works knots with ease. Smaller diameter rope also means less fatigue on the hike to the climb and more space in your pack. Overall, a great quality rope.
