why go heavier?
Spectacular rope. Incredible dynamic stretch and super lightweight. The rope is tough, durable and ideal for just about all the climbing you can throw at it. And its super lightweight making it useful for a mountaineering trip where budget doesn't support the purchase of twins/half ropes.
I've set up top ropes, sport climbs, drug the rope across the country (literally from Mass to Idaho)and had a lot of great climbs with it. I expect a lot more before I retire it. I even used it to teach the lady friend to lead (pictured).
Get this rope for satisfactory sport climbs, trad climbs whether you're doing a five minute or five mile approach.
