Description

Don't step foot on a glacier without it.

Designed specifically for glacier travel and alpinism, the 8.5mm Edelweiss Touring Standard Climbing Rope supplies reliable half-rope performance with a price tag that won't lay waste to your bank account. The low 5.8KN impact force rating minimizes stress on marginal snow and ice anchors while the slender 8.5mm diameter allows this cord to function in half or twin rope systems.

  • 5.8KN impact force rating minimizes stress on anchor points
  • 8 fall UIAA rating ensures many days of reliable use
  • 8.5mm diameter allows the rope to perform as a half or twin rope
  • Low weight of 48 g/m is ideal for fast alpine pursuits and glacier travel

Hey Ancris,
Although you could use this rope, I would recommend you go with a static rope. Dynamic ropes such as these are designed to catch falls, and in your situation this is not necessary. In addition, you may want more to work with than 40 m of rope. I would check out these options

Although these are more expensive on first look you are getting a rope that isn't designed to stretch and much more rope for what you are paying for. Let us know if you have further questions or concerns!

Although the price point is low, this rope is short, and is a half-rope. Assuming you are looking for a sport/top-rope I would suggest looking for a 9.8-10.2mm, 60m rope that can take a decent number of falls. Another thing to look for is a dry treatment. This will help the rope to last longer. Something like this may be more what you are looking for,although it does not have a dry treatment:

Hey Adam,
This is not a very good climbing specific rope. I would recommend you get at least a 60m climbing rope. If this is your first rope I would also recommend going with a 70 m if you can afford it. This will allow you to cut off worn parts of your rope when it is getting beat up. I would also recommend a diameter above 10.0mm if you are either doing a lot of top roping or falling. Let us know if you have further questions or concerns!
