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.

  • 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.

Ain't no party, ain't no disco.

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.

Ain't no party, ain't no disco.

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.

  • 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

      Love my Xion

      • 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.

      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.


          This is an amazing all around rope!

          Fall and fall again and this hefty rope will catch you.

          It lasts forever and handles incredibly well. Another solid product from Petzl, though I didn't buy it from backcounrty-sadly.


          handles well

            this rope is great, it does not get tangled easily and handles well. It's also pretty, I got the green. My other friend got the blue rope from REI and he noticed some fraying of the sheath on its first use. Not a huge problem because the core is prob ok. I haven't seen that on my rope yet and I've been using it for a month now.

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

            Anybody use this in practice with the older...

            Anybody use this in practice with the older gri gri? it doesnt seem to engage too well from what i can tell sitting here with a rope and my harness. how is it actually roped up at a climb?

            Would the Petzl Xion 10.1 be an okay rope...

            Would the Petzl Xion 10.1 be an okay rope to top rope with?

            I don't see a length listed for this rope....

            I don't see a length listed for this rope. Is it 60m or 70m length?
