I love this rope.
Here's mine near Mount Russell in the Sierra Nevada. (And my BRAND-SPANKING-NEW-at-the-time Petzl SumTec...)
I wrote a rather extensive description of why this rope is NOT the dry-treated version somewhere on BC, but I don't know where it is.
They make a dry-treated one that BC now carries. (cool).
I've never really had a problem with it getting wet, though.
It's small in diameter and dries fast.
It also doesn't have marks every 12 meters, but it has a middle marker.
This little rope fits in the bottom of a small pack and is barely noticeable, weight-wise.
It's been with me on many adventures and will come on many more.
Well thought-out 45 foot raps can get you out of some trouble...
One time, we drank beers, rigged up a 6:1 and tried to reel in my Subaru. I think I left the parking brake on...(why you should almost never mix technical rope work with beers...)
I still want a red version of this rope to pair up with the blue one.
I saw one in Chamonix and I should have bought it.
