The lightness of a twin rope combined with all the advantages of a double rope.

On technical ice and sketchy alpine forays, few rope systems can compete with the 8.1mm Beal Ice Line Unicore Golden Dry Climbing Rope. The Golden Dry technology individually treats each fiber in both the sheath and core for maximum water resistance, and the ultra-low 4.9KN impact force rating minimizes stress on anchor points, bolstering your confidence when you're pumping-out above marginal protection.

  • Golden Dry technology coats each sheath and core fiber with a polymer treatment for high resistance to water, humidity, and dirt
  • Unicore construction eliminates sheath slippage in wet conditions or when the sheath is accidentally severed
  • 8.1mm diameter supplies the low weight and smooth running of a twin rope while still providing the versatility of a half rope
  • Ultra low impact force of 4.9 KN minimizes stress on anchor-points, making the rope ideal for marginal protection in snow and ice
  • 9-10 UIAA fall rating ensures many days of reliable performance

The best ice/alpine ropes I've used

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pros: Very durable (for half ropes), amazingly low water absorption, good handling- even over several years.
Cons: No middle mark
I'm now on my second set of these, and I only retired the first pair due to age (not condition). I use them regularly, mostly for ice climbing, occasionally for alpine rock. Contrasted to some other brands I've used, these simply stay the closest to their original condition and performance over time. The minimal water absorption is worth mentioning twice as it really makes one's quality of life better when climbing wet ice multiple days in a row.
Note: I've only owned these with the Unicore and Golden Dry options
