    A light durable cord for hard redpoints and all-day routes.

    Uncoil the Sterling Evolution Velocity Bicolor Rope when it's time for a redpoint attempt on an elusive project, or a lengthy multi-pitch where quick clipping is key. The Evolution Velocity boasts just the right stiffness for easy clips and reduced drag. A low impact rating complements a low weight, while an intuitive bicolor design keeps you safe and aware of when you reach the center point.

    Amazing Rope Amazing Rope

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I started climbing a few months ago and since I started going pretty often decided I needed my own gear and bought this rope. Amazing feel when belaying, it great for descending in a rappel mode since its bicolor so you easily know when you've reached the middle, everyone who's used it automatically falls in love with it and the diameter is great with both the reverso and grigri2. LOVE IT!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Sterling Evolution Velocity rope is by far the most durable and longest lasting rope in my quiver. This is true today, as it was years ago. Owning multiple ropes does for different types of climbing does not come cheap, but the Velocity stands up to any test. It performs extraordinarily well as a long sport climbing day, or for that hard, single-pitch trad project. As an ice climbing rope the thicker diameter of the Velocity ensures that you feel safe with all of the pointy hardware flying around you and performs when wet and semi-frozen.

    It is true that Sterling ropes get a "fuzz" on the sheath of them, but do not let this fool you into another brand. The Velocity is the most durable rope that I have ever had and have been amazed at what type of abuse it can withstand.

    Great rope and would recommend this particular diameter for the one-and-only rope you'll need.

    I have been really looking forward to a bicolor rope and got this in the mail today. When I was flaking it out I noticed some fraying on the sheath. Obviously the core is still good but should I return it because it's frayed out of the box?

    Yes. even though the core is still good, with time, the fray will only get larger. Then thats a 200 dollar rope just wasted in half the amount of time. When your climbing your rope is your only point of safety. So having a frayed rope isn't the best idea.
