    Keep on cranking throughout the seasons.

    Petzl designed its Arial Dry 9.5mm Climbing Rope for experienced climbers who want to ascend everything from the local crags to Chamonix's mixed routes. This thin rope balances its light weight with performance to keep you cranking on rock, ice, or snow throughout the seasons. Despite its light weight and skinny diameter, the Arial still boasts a strong impact force and a high fall rating so you can climb with it for a long time. Petzl treated this rope with Duratec Dry to resist water, dirt, and abrasion as well as to enhance grip and handling in cold, wet conditions. The EverFlex treatment gives this rope a prolonged grip and consistent handling by stabilizing the core's strands, and an UltraSonic finish bonds the core to the sheathe to eliminate frayed ends and increase this rope's overall durability. The ClimbReady Coil lets you uncoil this rope out of its package without a bunch of tangles.

    Most valuable rope in my collection

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Though I haven't had the rope for a terribly long time, it has prevailed on many trips to Joshua tree, gyms, and many other worthy places. The rope itself is extremely strong, does not wear easily, and is very nimble right out of the box. Much love for this item. More than worth the money.

    Best out of the Box

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Most ropes are so stiff, when I get them, that I leave like, two feet of tail in my knot. I know people that know people that fell from a stiff, new rope, sliding out of their know. You know how that goes, hear it once and it's real. Anyway, at the very least, a stiff new rope is also very twisty and not fun to use for at least 2 or 3 routes. Plus, this one doesn't knot up on it's self at all, and I just stuff it in the Petzl Bolsa rope bag. Oh, and the mid marker is very nice to have done by the professionals. And, it's very easy to see.

    This is the most perfect performing rope, I have ever used. I'm super impressed. I used it about 10+ times. I should not give it 5 stars, till I've used to for a whole season. But, I'm so blown away with the comfort of catching a fall and quality already, I can't help but feel this is truly an exception product.

    Best all-around rope out there

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am on my third Ariel and it is my go-to rope for cragging and multi-pitch climbing. While I also love the Volta when weight really matters, it is nice to have a little extra diameter for durability purposes and ease in terms of holding falls and rappelling. The rope is super supple making for soft catches and easy clipping. It also feeds nicely through my reverso and grigri. All and all, I have no complaints!

    Feeds and catches like butter

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my 3rd rope... It's gone out about a dozen times. I love how it feeds through my Mega Jul, handles when clipping, and catches good falls. Dynamic elongation is on point. You won't regret this buy.

    Light and smooth

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have found my 9.5 mm 60 meter Petzl Arial Dry Climbing Rope - to be one of the smoothest out there. I thought I would be walking the line taking repeated falls having a 9.5mm opposed to my standard 9.7-8mm's but this thing has been solid. It has been and will continue to be my workhorse for projects. It feeds so smoothly, has wonderful catches and I mean... It's a PETZL you can't go wrong.

    Arial Rope Review

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I just received my second Arial 9.5 70m rope from Petzl, and can’t wait for the spring season to put it through the paces. I am still climbing on my first Arial that is over a year and half old and it has proven time and again to be one of the best cords I have purchased in recent years. I have been most impressed with its handling, smooth action through my Grigri, and durability. Over the past year, I have climbed at least a dozen long multi-pitch alpine routes, countless single pitch objectives, and projected at least another half dozen sport climbs. The sheath has only recently started to fray and the integrity of the cord is as good as the day I first tied in. Several of my friends bought this same rope and have had nothing but good things to say. While the supple nature of the rope is one of its attributes, it takes a bit of getting used to when catching sport climbing falls, since there is a fair amount of stretch. While the cost is on the upper end for skinny cords, I believe it is a great fit for the alpine enthusiast and sport climber alike.

    Fantastic Rope

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    When I shop for a rope, I look for something durable yet somewhat light (it's difficult to get both of these in one product), and I go by feel (or hand) of the rope. The Arial is the winner for me when it comes to these criteria.
    Having used both the Arial and Volta, I consistently take the Arial on trips. Yes, it's a little heavier at 3 g/m more than the Volta, but I enjoy knowing that a little thicker cord will stand up to abuse a bit better.
    What I enjoy most about the Arial, however, is the hand. It moves well while on the wall, the clipping is easy, the catches are soft, and there's no break in period with how well it bends to knot. Some ropes are pretty stiff from the get-go, Petzls are ready to go right out of the package.
    I expect we'll be seeing more of both the Arial and the Volta out at the crag as people come to realize what a solid rope both of these options are for both working climbs, and going for the redpoint.

    Catches all my whips!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use this rope for sport climbing and it has been fantastic. The falls are nice and soft with 32% stretch, and at 9.5mm it is nice and light for when you get on those longer routes. The middle mark is a black stripe which stands out against the bright orange color that I have. There isn't much more you can really say about a rope, so pick one up and see for yourself!

    Arial on the Ascent

    Me following up some alpine terrain 1,000ft off the deck. I love the Arial for this type of climbing. Sure you could go thinner, but the 9.5 is great for using on cold days with gloves on. Easy to belay, lead, and rappel with.

    Arial on the Ascent

    Solid Choice for a Thinner Line

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I own the Petzl Arial 60m (dry) in orange color. I love this rope. Clearly marked center, runs very smoothly through the Black Diamond ATC/ GRIGRI, and is fast on repel. Lightweight and smooth for clipping. As far as construction of the rope, it seems to be very durable for a 9.5mm. I also own a Mammut Infinity 9.5mm which I really like, however the Petzl seems to feed better and is also much softer. Perfect for all day trad adventures or sport cragging with a crew. All around SWEET rope!!
