The skinniest half rope in the world.
You might be tempted to use it for flossing your teeth, but make no mistake, the Mammut Twilight Dry Climbing Rope is a serious half rope for serious alpine pursuits. With its 7.5mm diameter and featherlight weight of just over an ounce per meter, the Twilight is hardly perceptible until you slip and experience the soft catch. Plus, the SuperDry finish means this cord will perform equally well on wet snow and ice.
- SuperDry finish is applied to both the sheath and the core for wet-weather performance, improved handling, and abrasion resistance
- COATINGfinish ensures that only the finest raw materials were used for unrivaled performance, durability, and increases resistance to dirt and water
- Super-skinny 7.5mm diameter allows this rope to weigh in at just 1.3 ounces per meter
- Low-impact force ratings of 6.2 KN (half) and 9.9 KN (twin) provide a soft catch
- UIAA fall rating of 6-7 (half) and 15-16 (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

Blister Gear Review
Blister climber Dave Alie weighs in on this long-form review.
The part where they test the ropes at then end is very neat!
Who doesn't like twins?
"So good, really. Can't think of a better friend for getting this for me.
For long approaches these things take up absolutely no space in the bag. For easy routes you can just bring one and double it up and climb on a 30m rope. Want to take rookies up a multipitch, have the safety of two ropes to rap but don't want to teach double rope technique? These, contrary to the description, require the same belay technique as single rope. I pretty much use them for that in Squamish or the alpine and they're going to last forever."
I haven't had the pleasure of using this with him yet, but I will say watching how these beautiful ropes are made and the endurance they test them with. They are a detailed craft and design. Maybe that's why they are considered the best.
The new (green and red) Twilight's have...
The new (green and red) Twilight's have both a half and twin cert. The older ones only a twin cert. Does anyone know if there were any changes made to this rope from the previous version (orange and purple colors), or was this just mammut getting an additional 'cert' that the old ropes also would have qualified for?
