Good rope. I climb usually 3-5 times a week and have been using this rope, mostly for sport climbing. Stretch wasn't too dramatic on a lead fall. Don't rely on the "rope bag" it comes in. Its a total piece of crap and pretty much fell apart completely on about the 5th times I took this thing out. I tend to like ropes where the sheath pattern is different once you get to the middle point. I can see the black center mark blending in on this once the rope starts getting dirtier. I chose the 10.5 diameter in the hopes that this will last longer in terms of lots of toprope sessions and a few lead falls here and there.
