Linda cuerda

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Es una cuerda de buena calidad, la camisa exterior no soporta mucha abrasión, pero con algo de cuidado se puede mantener en buenas condiciones.
El único inconveniente que le encontré es la marca a la mitad, después de algunos usos es difícil de distinguir. Le falta contraste a los colores.

It is a rope of good quality, the outer shell not supports a lot of abrasion, but with a little care can be maintained in good condition.
The only drawback I found is the halfway mark, after a few uses it is difficult to distinguish. Lacks contrast to the colors.

Aaaah, love this rope.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this rope about 10 or so times and I am in love with it. I've climbed with it in the hot of the Arizona summer and the snows of the Mt. Lemmon. I've seen it soaked in water, laying in snow, caught between cracks in the wall, and beaten by the sun. It is a relentless, smooth sliding, fantastic looking, and easy to identify middle marked rope.

Aaaah, love this rope.

Fantastic rope. It's durable enough for those of us who love to sport climb and take some whippers. I have put this rope through many a stressful fall over the last year and it hasn't even begun to show wear and tear, not to mention that it flows very smoothly for the belayer. Highly recommend this rope.

Big, durable, sorta heavy

This rope does the trick! Bought the green one and the middle mark is visible every time.

Durable, and very rope-like.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This rope has many ropelike properties. It catches me from falls.
It is also damn durable and still looks pretty new after lots of use. It has barely gotten fuzzy from running over rocks, and doesn't pick up any dirt, even at some muddy crags.

First Time User

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

Went out with my buddy the other day who had just bought this rope and used it for the first time. The rope handled great through both the Grigri 2 and Reverso 4. I recommend this to climbers looking to just hang out around the crag. I will definitely be picking one of these ropes up soon!

Awesome rope

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Took this rope out to Pilot MT for its first use and it handled everything from rappelling to TR to leading all with super ease, Im very surprised with how the rope handled. It even started to rain as we were getting finished and it took the rain like a pro.

Subtle and secure

This rope is burly and ready for lots of adventures. It has a real soft and subtle feel to it that makes belaying easy, clipping easy. falling is easy to since you know this thing is tough.

The middle line disappeared very quickly. which is a bummer, it should be bright pink or something

great durable rope

This guys has lasted me over 2 season to date, lots of top roping, lead falls, etc

Responded on

Definitely has some fraying, but nothing really bad yet. I have neglected this rope and had tons of toprope with major rope drag however.

Great rope for an all-purpose workhorse - sport, trad, leading, top-roping. The rope handles extremely well, super soft.

Awesome Rope

I have the green 60 meter. It feeds great through my ATC and Grigri 2. I love how the bright green pops out against pretty much any rock face. This rope is super durable and I would love to get the 80 meter.

Love my Xion

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is an excellent rope. I have the blue 60. It's extra thick sheath gives me peace of mind, and maybe even a little more confidence, before I start climbing. I don't even think about the rope when I am climbing but what climber does? It feeds like butter through my ATC and GRI GRI II. It gives a nice and comforable catch from 4 to 40 feet--and I am sure beyond. I use it for sport, trad and top roping. I have climbed with this rope many, many days in the year that I have owned it. I treat it well but like everyone inadertently subject it to bad rock now and then. I have no complaints about its durability. I find myself strangely emotionally attached to this rope. When I buy another rope, I am going to buy the green 70. I am a Xion guy for life, as long as they don't change it. Petzl did this one right.

Hey Andy and Brad

My wife and I are coming to Wa State for a camping trip and are looking for some good climbing in the interior of Washington. Any other good places to climb?
What climb is this at King Pins?

Steve

Responded on

Hey Steve. We would recommend Leavenworth. We have not climbed there but hear it is superb. We also think it would be a great area to camp. The climb Andy is leading is called Whipsaw.

Ridiculously awesome rope.

This rope has seen many routes, tons of dirty landings off the side of the rock and lots of rubbing on the rock. It still looks pretty much brand new. Highly recommend this rope to be your main go to for all your climbing adventures.

Great rope

Very easy to handle. Not too heavy if you place protection to minimize rope drag.

Anybody happen to use this rope for tree...

Anybody happen to use this rope for tree climbing? Would it be appropriate?

Responded on

I'm sure it would work. It's a solid rope and knots tie easily.
