Lightweight, durable, and weather-resistant for your next alpine adventure.
From wandering mixed pitches to splitter alpine granite, tie into the Mammut Phoenix SuperDry 8mm Climbing Rope for all your half and twin rope needs. The low-impact force takes the sting out of unexpected falls, and the SuperDry finish ensures this rope will handle well and perform in both wet and dry conditions.
- SuperDry finish is applied to both the sheath and the core for wet-weather performance, improved handling, and abrasion resistance
- Skinny 8mm diameter allows this rope to weigh in at just 1.6 ounces per meter
- Low-impact force ratings of 6 KN (half) and 9.5 KN (twin) provide a soft catch
- UIAA fall rating of 9-10 (half) and 20+ (twin) ensures ample strength and durability for alpine climbing applications
- Lap-coiled tangle-free packing means this rope is ready for use immediately, eliminating the need for flaking the rope out to avoid tangles

Great lightweight ropes
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have a pair of these for winter alpine climbing and like them a lot. They handle smoothly and the dry treatment works perfectly. The only drawback is somewhat reduced durability due to being so thin and lightweight. Rappelling or following on a single strand when one of these ropes has a spot of sheath wear can be a little unnerving. That's an inherent tradeoff with a rope this light, though.
I would not recommend these for situations where the rope is going to be running over sharp rock all the time, but for snow and ice they are perfect.

Last few weeks I'm climbing with my friends on those ropes all the time and they are amazing :)
Recommend to everyone :)
This thing is going to be awesome.
I have yet to use this, but can already tell this is an ideal rope for someone looking to climb alpine routes in the Sierra Nevada. I'll likely be using just one strand as a twin in most situations class 4 to 5.7/5.9, allowing for 30m technical pitches and 30m repels. Assuming it won't be as durable as the Genesis 8.5mm, but for the weight savings it will be worth it for a weekend warrior that is not beating the hell out of it. I'll report back after I get a couple months climbing on it...cheers!
