If you want a light line but don't want to sacrifice durability, get yourself the 9.5mm Mammut Infinity. This rope weighs a scant 58g/m, making it a perfect pick for alpine routes and high-end sport climbs where every ounce really makes a difference. Unlike other ropes, the Infinity uses Mammut's Teflon coating process which covers each fiber individually to reduce internal friction and increase the line's life span.

What do you think about this product?

Have questions about this product?

Yep just what i wanted.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Great light rope with all the capabilities i want, trad climbing harder sport, multi pitch and since i live in a wet climate, doesn't mold. It has a great catch, butter through a belay, fits a grip-gri 2 perfectly, is light for the long 120ft sport climbing i love up here on the redwood coast and surprisingly tough when taken care of properly. The mid marker fads rather quickly but that is by no means a deal breaker. If i "needed" a mid marker in high risk situations i would get doudess, but i'll save the money and mark it myself. My partner and i put some mileage on it this season and i am super please with mammut.

Lookin Good

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

This was a gift for my husband as we have started setting up our first climbing setup. This rope has great reviews and looks like it will be a great all around rope until we find any specific specializations in our climbing styles!

Tough as nails

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have ~50 pitches on this rope of ice and rock. Excels at both. Minimal kinkage and is smooth through belay devices and is easy to stack at belay stations, surprisingly light for a 70m.

Tough as nails

Standard

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I climbed on a variety of ropes before this one and this was my first mammut experience. It converted me. This rope is like butter right out of the package, it needs very little breaking in. It's also really durable. I think that this specific rope is the pinnacle for a sport rope.

I will only climb on Mammut

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

What makes climbing (or any outdoor activity) better? When your gear works. This rope is incredibly light weight, has an iron hide, but is so soft and supple! Feeds effortlessly through crazy wandering lines and doesn't feel like it's paired up with gravity to drag you off the wall when you're off the deck 90'. And as everyone else has said, it is so soft and supple. Still pushes a gate easily though on those desperate clips. Despite the fact that I nearly had an aneurism paying for this thing, i brag about this rope to anyone who will listen. Only downside: center mark dye wears out pretty quick so you have to keep refreshing it on the 80 meter ocean color (please make an 80 meter bi-color!)

Light weight but still durable. Amazing!

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I wanted a rope which I could use for both in rock climbing and mountaineering. So I wanted my rope to have dry treamtement/s on it and light weight as well as being tough. This rope was perfect for what I was needing for and I will definitely rate 5 out of 5!

Great Rope

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This was the first rope I have ever purchased for personal use. My friends who taught me how to climb have fatter ropes so I went with something skinnier that we could use on longer approaches or on ice. The rope has a great feel to it, supple, easy to knot and coil. Definitely feel secure, taken a few falls and the stretch is perfect, soft catches. I bought it this Fall and used it through various Sport/top rope/ and Ice Climbing, still looks really good. There is a little fraying for sure but, overall the rope looks in great condition. Definitely plan to get a few more years of use out of it.

Great Rope

Excellent Skinny Rope

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought the 70m bi-pattern version to take outside. So far this rope hasn't disappointed. I was amazed at how much easier it was to work with a quality rope versus the inexpensive rope I bought first.



The Good:

--Excellent feel and feeding through all my belay devices; especially nice giving slack on lead belay from a Grigri.

--Skinny enough that it's light for long approachs/backcountry work, fat enough to still catch perfectly in a Grigri 2.

--Not kinky at all.

--Nice soft catch, and not any more extension than my cheap, 10.0mm gym rope

--Bi-pattern makes watching for center easy on long lowers and rappels.



The Bad:

--More expensive than some other offerings.



I winced a bit when I paid for this rope, but I'm glad I did. When my current gym rope dies, I may take that as an excuse to buy another one of these!

Smooth like silk

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought the 70m bi-pattern, and I love it. It's definitely worth the extra $ for the bi-pattern, as it makes rappels so much faster and easier, not having to search/coil for the mid-point every time. As far as performance, this rope is a dream. For both the climber and the belayer, it runs smooth, is light and easy to handle, and doesn't get kinked. I use it for sport-cragging and multi-pitch trad routes, and it performs ideally on both. Not the cheapest rope I've bought, but worth it.

Hells yeah

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I think this rope is the best handling dry rope I've ever used. It has been super durable for me on Little Cottonwood granite and I'm not afraid to take it when I know some folks will be hang dogging or top roping routes with me. Highly recommend after several months of 3-4x per week use.

Glides like a dream

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This rope is so supple! I have the 70m 9.5 Yellow Duodess. I took it climbing in Eldorado Canyon and Lumpy Ridge and it glides like a dream. It's thin and sleek enough to feed through an autoblock without wearing your arms out, but still breaks very securely in the Black Diamond ATC Guide. With the narrow diameter the weight savings are sweet, and the bipattern made it clear to my climbing partner that we needed to belay from the top on a single pitch route.

Glides like a dream

Not as durable as it's cracked up to be

    I got this rope because it is light and was reported to be very durable due to its Teflon coating. I recently took it for its maiden voyage on a four-day trip to Red Rocks.

    Pros: Good handling. Light

    Cons: Fuzzy after four days. Rubbed 1/3 of the way through the sheath on a pull after a rappel. Expensive.

    Conclusion: Will not buy another

    I see you took the time to post here and discredit this rope. Perhaps spending that time reading the product descriptions/specs/reviews before buying an expensive rope would have been a wiser choice.



    Below is the short, less flowery version of what appears on the manufacturers page:



    The core of this rope is Teflon coated to reduce friction between the fibers and keep them dry.



    The sheath which protects the rope is dry treated, not Teflon coated, and does not boast any feature that makes it last longer than any similar rope when used/abused. (if you wear though 1/3 of the sheath on any single routine action, your doing something wrong).



    I have owned, used this rope for a 14 months. Routinely lead climb on lots of granite some sandstone and will take it up Rainier this coming weekend. Self and others have taken falls on it, scraped an occasional ledge that couldn't be avoided. I fully expect the rope to be my primary for another 1-2 years of heavy/responsible use.

    Fast and Smooth

      I tend to have my doubts about ropes thinner than 9.8mm. It seems impossible that a rope skinnier than that could be durable enough to put up with repeated use and abuse. The Mammut Infinity however has proven to be as durable as its beefier brothers, and weighs so much less!



      This rope is so smooth to belay with, and clipping it is a breeze. Even at the top of a 90ft route, this rope feels light. Gotta love all the bonus features, like the bi-pattern design and the teflon coating. Can't wait to put more miles on this rope.

      Fast and Smooth

      UPDATE: Having owned this rope for about 9 months (it's seen close to 100 pitches in that time), I've had to chop about three meters off of the ends. Serves me right for taking the amount of whips that I have on it. Surprised it didn't get core-shot earlier...

      Mammut 60m yellow duodess

      • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I finally got to use the rope Friday, first thoughts out of the gate are I like the rope. Very smooth feed through the grigri2, and the half way braid change it great for the repel set up. Will be putting it in the field soon and will update from there.

      Infinity rope

      Mammut yellow 60m duodess

      Infinity rope

      Here is a comment, when I was shopping for dynamic climbing ropes in 60m. I had two in mind, one being the petzl xion, and this one. I did an online chat with back country.com, to help my decision process. Scary enough the person tried to sell me a blue water static rope in 65m. WTH? I did finally call BC.com and talked with a real person, I think mark was his name, an actual climber, and he helped guide me to the correct choice rope.

      Hi! Any idea when these will be coming back into stock?
      Thanks!

      Hi,



      Any idea how long until these ropes will be back in stock?

      Will you be getting more of these in stock or are they discontinued?

      I need a rope for glacier travel that I...

      I need a rope for glacier travel that I can also use rock climbing if I ever decide to get into it. Is this the rope for me?

      Best Answer

      Possibly. It really depends on a few variables. How many people do you plan to travel with on the glacier? Teams generally consist of 3 but, sometimes you go with 2 or 4. With 2 people you would have the most rope between your partner and yourself and 60 m would leave you with a lot extra. Generally I would use a 50 m rope for this as its enough rope between climbers plus you have more than enough to perform the rescue if necessary. Could you get away with 60 m? Sure, it just might be unnecessarily heavy, which matters if your going on a big trip or trying to move fast. If you have a 4 person team the 60 m is a necessity to ensure the lead and caboose have enough rope to perform a rescue.



      Personally I would get 2 ropes, something like a Beal 8.1 http://www.backcountry.com/beal-ice-line-8.1mm-rope?ti=UExQIENhdDpNb3VudGFpbmVlcmluZyBSb3BlczoxOjU6YmNzQ2F0ODExMDAwMjc0&skid=BEA0025-ANI-S60M it comes in 50 m and strong enough to hold a fall in most glacier environments. Realize the rating is half that of the Mammut, so maybe I would be worried taking a huge whipper on this. I own the Mammut Infinity and its great for climbing as its really durable, I also use it ice climbing as it's rated for single rope use. If you used the Infinity for glacier travel its too heavy, if you used something like the Beal Ice line its not durable enough for extended use and is kinda scary if your sport climbing and possibly going to take a big fall.

      Is this rope (70 meter/259.15$) is bipattern or has a mark on the middle by default or do we have to ask for it?

      Hey, the description says it's a bi-pattern but the pictures appear otherwise. I want to confirm that its a bi-pattern rope.

      Does this rope come in 60m Yellow duodess?...

      Does this rope come in 60m Yellow duodess? I only see the 70m. Thanks



      Update: I did end up buying the yellow 60m duodess rope!

      Is this rope packaged ready to climb?

      Is this rope packaged ready to climb?

      It's got a center mark, so it's pretty much good to go. You might want to tape the ends so the don't fray over time, and mark 10' up from each end.

      It's always a good idea to flake the rope out and give it a good looking over before trusting your life to it.

      Mammut uses a process called "lap coiled" here is the link: http://www.mammut.ch/en/ropes_quality_lapcoiled.html

      Tangle Free Ropes



      Mammut says:

      A further innovation of the Mammut Rope factory is the �Lap Coiled� coiling technology. Thanks to the first fully automatic �Lap Coiled� rope packing machine, Mammut ropes have additional safety and comfort advantages.

      Up until now, it was necessary to very carefully unroll a new rope, rather than simply uncoiling it, in order to keep it from becoming twisted. The technique is not easy to learn and must be done correctly to prevent tangles. For lead climbing, top roping and abseiling (rappelling), tangles in the rope are a hindrance and can be dangerous as they make handling difficult. When a rope has tangles, they must be worked out by hanging the rope and allowing the rope to untwist naturally. Thanks to the new �Lap Coiled� technique in the production, the uncoiling process no longer introduces the twisting that leads to tangles.

      The heart of the new machine is a new technique for coiling the rope. Instead of coiling it as in the past, a seven-axis programmable robot arm lays the rope in a figure eight form. Ropes up to 100m long can be coiled in this way without introducing a twist. Safety marking and strapping of the finished rope are integrated into the automated coiling process. Due to the multiple stage quality control steps, the renowned Mammut quality is guaranteed.

      Now, you can simply open your pack, tie in and climb!

      Never used a 9.5mm rope before. Is it too thin to use with an ATC for rapping and belaying (especially with the teflon coating)?

      No, not too thin for an ATC (though it will make your heart pound the first couple times you use it). With any purchase, I'd say to test the gear out at home before you go outside with it so there aren't any surprises when you really need it. On that note, I don't use my 9.5 as much because I'm climbing mostly on sharp granite on moderate trad routes, which leads to a lot of abrasion. I'm happier with my 9.8 or even a 10.2, especially if it's getting used A LOT. Save this guy for redpointing and hard sport routes!

      Happy trails!

      Is it worth paying an extra $50 for the duo-dess? Both 70m Duo-dess and SuperDry are Dry treated, and the only seemingly big difference is that the duo-dess makes the mid point easier to find. Any insight?

      Absolutely! The bipattern makes it easier to see the middle but also easier to tell how much rope is left, which end is on top, makes rope management...whether on the ground or at a hanging belay, much easier. Well work the extra 50 bucks!

      Mammut makes their infinity climbing rope in an 80m lenght. Backcountry does not offer this as a purchasing option, they only show the 60m and 70m ropes. Is there any way that backcountry can get a hold of the 80m rope for me to buy

      So is the orange color the only one with the superdry treatment? It says dry next to the orange option, but not the blue.

      Best Answer

      I believe that the blue has the superdry treatment as well. The Mammut website shows it as having the superdry too. The only difference between the blue and the orange colors is that the blue has the duodess where the pattern of the rope changes at the halfway mark.
