The do-it-all climbing rope.
It doesn't matter if you're climbing ice, sport, trad, multipitch, big wall, or the highest peaks in the world. As long as you're going up, you're golden, and the Edelrid Swift Dry Climbing Rope lets you do it all. Its 8.9mm diameter makes this rope one of the skinniest certified single ropes on the market, and you can still use it as a half rope for icy ascents, or pair it up with another rope for ultra-long multipitches. Edelrid equipped this versatile climbing rope with a Pro Shield for optimal performance, a Dry Shield to resist water and dirt, and a Thermo Shield treatment for enhanced handling. Despite its skinny diameter and light weight, the Swift still boasts a superb fall rating when you use it as a single rope for onsight attempts, and its fall rating for when you use it has a half or twin rope is simply exquisite. Get the 80 meter for long multipitch routes, the 70 for sport, or rock the standard 60 if you want the ideal all-arounder.

80 Meters of Awesome

My brother's review:
This rope was awesome. Specifically purchased for a trip to Greece to help meet weight requirements for carry on and checked baggage. The 80 meters ended up being necessary for many of the routes we did. The 8.9 mm diameter paired well with the Edelrid Megajul. Super low friction during belay and after being used for a few days it no longer became tangled easily. After climbing some seriously sharp limestone, the sheath showed minimal wear, it seems to have a very durable protective coating. The smaller diameter does seem to get caught easier when pulling the rope but knowing this ahead of time allowed for caution and we were able to pull it every time without any real issues. Itâs not the best rope to rappel on due to the dynamic properties and narrow diameter but it got the job done. We mostly topped out and hiked off all the multipitch climbs so it wasnât a big deal. Iâd definitely recommend this rope for sport, trad and alpine ascents. Itâs easy to handle, durable and the size and weight minimize rope management difficulty.

How well does the Reverso 4 work with this?
It will work just fine with a Reverso. It isnt until you get into the really skinny half/twin ropes where you run into issues using a standard tube style belay device.
If you have anymore questions feel free to send me an email or call!
Let me update this to provide more accurate info. There are some specialized single ropes out there that are skinnier than 8.9mm. The Reverso will work with an 8.9mm rope but, thats the skinniest rope that it can safely use. The rope will slip through faster but, you can effectively arrest a fall with the Reverso on anything 8.9mm or thicker.
