They may be a little expensive and overkill for 20m sport routes, but for the alpine and trad routes, these are awesome! I would suggest getting some longer runners so that they can be extended. With extendable runners, these draws are the best that I've used for alpine routes. I also think any weight savings are nice once I get over about 40# in the pack.

I bought a set of these ropes. Within 10 uses over the course of 4 months, the sheath came completely off of the core. We noticed that every time we rappelled, our ATC's would have copious amounts of sheath built up on them. The blue rope is completely core shot and the orange rope has shown signs of serious wear, indicating that the sheath could fail at any time. I have talked to some gear shops that indicate they have heard of similar problems with Petzl ropes. We have some Metolius half lines (7.8mm) with about 3 seasons on them under similar use that currently are not showing any signs of wear.
