    Details

    Versatile rope that handles any route you throw it on.

    You might work on your project at the sport crag one day and hit up that multipitch you've been eying the next. Either way, the Blue Water Lightning Pro Double Dry 9.7mm Climbing Rope is for you. It's strong and durable enough to withstand multiple falls on your project, and yet it remains very lightweight to keep you comfortable and mobile on the big walls. It's also very supple for excellent handling whether you're belaying your buddy or clipping through the crux. And Blue Water added a Double Dry treatment to prevent the rope from absorbing water after a rainy day.

    Flashy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'll be honest, I first decided on the Lightning Pro because it comes in hot pink. Color aside though, it's a great rope! It handles well, hasn't shown too much wear so far (better than my latest Mammut rope), and the dry coating is a nice addition.
    FYI, Bluewater's non bi-pattern ropes do not have middle marks. I put one on my Lightning Pro with a Sharpie "Rub-a-Dub" laundry marker (from Amazon), per Bluewater's recommendation.

    Stop looking for a new dynamic rope here

      Like all the comments below, I have yet to find a flaw in this rope. I did quite a bit of research for a rope I could use for alpine climbing and sport climbing alike. Couple things I was looking for - weight, dynamic stretch, and no knotting/twisting. Not only is this light, it provides a great dynamic stretch (but not too much) in order to cushion the fall. The rope, on the first use, never twisted or knotted. It did not require a break in period. Very easy to coil and slides through the belay device very smoothly. I get comments every time I take it out.

      Never lose sight of this one

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I love this rope! The bi-pattern is one of the best features, making
      it easy to know the midway point of the rope. It is light and sturdy
      and moves well through both an ATC and Grigri belay.

      Light and fast

        I just got my second Blue Water Lightning Pro 9.7mm rope. I currently have the 70 meter bi-color version. I'm a big fan.

        The rope is light and handles well. It makes lead belaying and knot tying a breeze. Note that there is not as much in the belay device as with a fatter rope, so you'll have to control your speed more carefully when rappelling.

        Lightweight and great

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've owned this rope since 2011 (retiring after this season) and honestly, this rope in itself is amazing. It's super lightweight and the dry treatment really does shed the water well. Everyone who climbs on it remembers the green color, how easily it clips and its light feeling. I gave it four stars because for some damn reason even when it looks clean this is the dirtiest rope I've ever owned. Overall, very pleased with this rope.. Buy it....

        Great in the alpine too!

        Here's another photo of the Lightning Pro, this time in Lone Peak. I've climbed with this rope everyday for the past two months I've had it, and I love it for every occasion. It's still perfect for sport climbing on nearby crags or faraway climbs like Ferguson's Fuego. But, I just found out that it's an excellent choice for Lone Peak too. We took it because it was the lightest choice among the four ropes our group had. We really appreciated it when rain started drizzling down our descent. We ran back into our tent, and the rope was dry for next morning's ascent. Thanks Blue Water and your excellent Double Dry treatment.

        Great in the alpine too!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Although I've only climbed with it for a week, I am psyched on Blue Water's Lightning Pro Double Dry 9.7mm Climbing Rope. I've never enjoyed a rope right out of the box this much. It feels more fluid than my recently retired rope, after a few seasons of flailed attempts and whippers up the wazoo.



        So far, I've climbed with this rope on multipitches like Arm and Hammer, or shorter pitches like this photo of me on Ferguson's Fuego. It's superlight and super compact in backpacks, so feel free to stow a few more sending sodas from now on.



        The rope's stretch seems to offer the perfect balance between giving a soft catch on lead, and not stretching down past the crux you just climbed. You can feel the Double Dry treatment when you're belaying, and it has definitely been useful this past wet season.



        And the color! You can see this thing from space. At least, my buddies could see it when they were looking for me from the road.

        Lightning on Fuego!

        Great rope

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've had this rope for a little over a year and I've been really happy with the choice. Good stretch and pretty soft catch. I really like the lighter weight, especially on longer pitches. Clips great and has a pretty smooth sheath which helps cut out rope drag.



        The rope has stayed very soft throughout its use and hasn't had any issues with tangling up, even after thoroughly mediocre packing jobs. The color really makes it pop out, especially in low light conditions. I've only had minimal fraying in the sheath and I've been very happy with how it has held up so far.



        The bi-color pattern is really nice to have, but I wish they had made the patterns a bit more different. It's plenty obvious once you're past the middle mark, but finding the exact middle point would be easier if the patterns were more different (especially when you're in a hurry).



        Overall, I'm very happy with this rope and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

        Great rope

        Soft and Durable

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        My second time ordering this same rope. My last one was 4 years old and had to retire it and ordered another one last week. Soft and durable rope. Awesome bi-pattern.

        Great Rope

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Awesome rope. This is my second rope I have owned (Edelweiss was my first) I have used it on about two dozen pitches. No issues and love how it feeds. The bi-color is worth the extra money. This thing glows at dusk. Have recommended to friends.

        My favorite rope

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've had this rope for 3 years. Use it for rock and ice climbing. Everyone i climb with comments on how nicely this rope clips. The dry treatment sheds water well. I can't think of anything I don't like about this rope. It shows very little wear.
