Sterling's skinny workhorse.
Sterling designed the Evolution Helix Dry Climbing Rope for the high-end sport and trad climbs where you're expecting to fall and whip. Its durable sheath and bantamweight core ensures durability, a high fall rating, and a low impact force for a soft catch. This Evolution Helix comes with a DryCoat for water-resistance and better handling in moist conditions.

Durable Rope for all Conditions
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
When it came to buying a rope, I was looking for 3 main factors: durability, length and performance in adverse conditions. The Helix Dry Climbing Rope by Sterling gave me all of those and more. First of all, when it comes to climbing ropes, quality should be first concern and price point second. Sterling ropes are on the upper end of the price spectrum but they are your life line on the crag. Sterling's fall rating is higher than most companies at 7 falls within their rigorous test standards. This does not mean that after 7 whips your rope is done, as these fall measurements are taken at an extreme circumstance. Rope inspection is super important everytime you hop on the wall so always check your gear!
At 9.5mm diameter, this rope will fit universally in almost any ATC device or Gri Gri and will last a good amount of time. The Drycoat sheath will make it so that this rope does not fail in wet or moist conditions and gives the outer sheath even more durability than most other ropes. Always flake out new ropes so that use is as simple as possible. Great rope by a great company and side note ( it looks badass on the wall)!
Does this rope have a center mark?
It does not have a center mark. There is a bicolor option.
