5 5

This thing is going to be awesome.

I have yet to use this, but can already tell this is an ideal rope for someone looking to climb alpine routes in the Sierra Nevada. I'll likely be using just one strand as a twin in most situations class 4 to 5.7/5.9, allowing for 30m technical pitches and 30m repels. Assuming it won't be as durable as the Genesis 8.5mm, but for the weight savings it will be worth it for a weekend warrior that is not beating the hell out of it. I'll report back after I get a couple months climbing on it...cheers!

I think these are going to my next ropes.

So how did they hold up John?

Well, after a solid year of crushing it in the mountains weekend warrior style - I can tell you this rope is worth the price. Sometimes I carry just for the fun of it like I did on Mount Hood this past month...(not really, hadn't climbed Hogsback before, got up there and decided to solo it). That said, without any specific measurements, it is waaay lighter than my buddies Genesis 8.5 and equally as durable.
