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

Bicolor is the way to go.

Love the bicolor rope and easy to find center point. Not having a quiver of ropes, I have been really happy with this rope for craging, sport climbing, and multi pitch trad routes. Great go to all around rope.
Kitties Prefer Sterling, Period

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.
