Amazing Rope

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!

Bicolor is the way to go.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

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.

Dude, I'm so stoked that I'm not the only one with an adventuring kitty. I take my girl everywhere. They would be great friends.

Just starting to do roped stuff outdoors and this is enough to make me a Sterling devotee. Internet, take note.

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.
