Gear Review

Pretty disappointed

Pat's review said this thing stands up to alot of abuse, but after 2 days of guiding on it, the rope had 2 core shots! The sheath literally seems to be deteriorating to the touch, quite scary really. Maybe I just got a bad cord, but your money is more wisely spent on another rope.

maybe because this rope is for onsighting and redpointing hard sport routes, not guiding....

as well as alpine and ice climbs might i add.

agreed... not a guiding rope... actually its a bit scary to think someone would be guiding on a rope this thin

i disagree. this thing held up a world of abuse, and only after a friend stupidly jumped over a ledge with a sharp edge did it get a core shot. if you are guiding, you probably wouldn't want this because of it's very high dynamic elasticity. you'll have many clients complaining about having to climb five feet plus over again.
