Used this rope for the first time at Red Rock National Conservation Area spring break this year. It was my third time rock climbing, (I do a lot of ice), and my first time sport climbing and I decided after doing some research that this rope would fit pretty well for the sport climbing that I want to do. I am very happy with it, the rope did very well on the trip after four days of 6-10 hour use. I was very attracted to the superDRY feature, which will be nice when ice season rolls around. Overall the rope is nice and seems to have good build quality. I recommend using a rope bag, or a piece or Tyvex if you want to stay cheap, it will help the rope last a lot longer.
