Great rope, blinding color at first!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Love this rope, been my go to for 2 years now and has now gone into retirement. I'm buying the same one for new adventures!

As stated before... the color when you first use it... holy moly! You can see it from the parking lot of a 3 mile hike in... it's insane. You feel like a serious "bro" on the route, BUT, it turns into quite a nice green after 15 pitches or so!

Reliable rope

We really love this rope. It is a necessity to have a 70 meter rope if you live in the Wasatch Range. This one is great, as the bicolor pattern keeps you in the know on where you are, for those routes that are cutting it a little close. :) It's a bit thinner, which is great for not getting too heavy while getting some added length.


Nice Rope!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I've used this rope a several days at crags in TN - really like it. Handles very well, like BiPattern. I give it 4 stars only because 5 is pretty hard to earn.

This rope has a dry treatment, right? If...

This rope has a dry treatment, right?

If so, what is the name of the dry treatment that sterling rope put on it?

Great Rope

    Ive climbed on this rope for a year (70m) no complaints. I wish i got the same rope for my 60m. I don't have the enthusiasm for 5 stars, its just a rope



      This rope is great! I got the super yellow color, and fair warning it is obnoxiously bright during your first 5-6 days climbing on it. I've used it for a few weeks now, and once dirty it is still beautiful, but can't be seen from 3 miles away like the new rope.

      All the meters is it?

      Great So Far

        This rope seems to be everything that I want in a rope. The only thing that remains to be seen is durability.
        -great cool bi-color
        -nice and lightweight
        -perfect feel- seems thinner than it is
        -doesn't get tangled at all

        My only complaint is that in its short life, it seems to pick up dirt rather quickly even though I use a tarp.

        What color do you have, I have used yellow ropes in the past and they do tend to pickup dirt rather quickly

        Oh and they do not pickup dirt any quicker than a darker color it just shows more
