Super Lightweight

This rope is an awesome color. It is super lightweight and compact. It has held ok to the abuse of Southern Utah canyons. I am a little concerned by some sheath slippage I am starting to see already, and also how quickly the abrasions are starting to take their toll.

Milk the sheath down a to one end with a prussik. Cut the excess off. Its just part of the maintenance of owning a rappel-only rope. Cutting off the excess will bring the core and sheath back into balance.
Sheath slippage isn't really a big deal on static ropes. Don't be concerned just because you read about sheath slippage as being a bad thing for unexplained reasons in a climbing magazine.
