- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This was the first rope I ever used and I have loved it since the first day I climbed on it. The rope is so bullet proof that it has held up quite well despite several novice rope drag mistakes. I have used it for sport climbing, top roping, and even a couple pitches of trad. I have climbed on it extensively (several times a week) this past summer and it has at least another summer of climbing in it before it may start to become hazardous. That being said I think it could last even longer if I had a better rope bag and avoided rope drag. Overall this is a great rope for beginners or those who don't mind/prefer hauling the larger rope.
