Antidote Climbing Rope

Any climber without a rope is a sad sender indeed, so turn your frown upside down with Beal's Antidote Climbing Rope. Its 10.2mm diameter is ideal for beginning belayers and advanced crushers flailing off all those projects. Beal's ThermoFluid rope construction eliminates sheath slippage for long-lasting durability, and an Ecological construction refuses to use dyes or chemical treatments for a Bluesign approved, environmentally-friendly status. The Antidote features a Black Limit middle marker for identifying the rope's middle and setting faster rappels.

Solid

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is a solid rope and my go to when teaching friends to belay. The the thicker diameter makes it easier for a newcomer to manage. This is a strong durable rope. My go to outdoors and indoors when I forget my 40m.

Great Rope for Beginners

Great rope for beginners learning to belay. The thick diameter rope is easy to handle and allows for easy braking with a classic Tube Style belay device. Middle marker is easy to see. Overall its a great rope at a great price point.

Good workhorse. Just know the specs

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

For starters, the rope looks good. Great color scheme. It seemed a little stiff at first, but, then again, it's a new rope. My figure eights were loosening themselves while leading trad multipitch though so I had to tie some backups (new ropes are always stiff). Durability: Outer Sheeth is great. I've only done 4 pitches with it so far and a few rappells but it feels and looks durable. I did have some drag that pulled it over a corner on a rock and it looks fine. Then again, ive only had it for a few weeks. Catch: Very dynamic. Can be good or bad depending on your needs. For me, it's good. Just need to be aware of it when calculating decking likelihood while leading. Cons: Not waterproof Overall, I like it. Good basic workhorse. 70m is a lot of fun. If you are leading, make sure you know how much it will stretch.

Good first rope

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Have used other ropes, but this was my first purchase. Nice and flexible in the hand. I bought this size for the durability and stretch and it has not dissapointed. Good for top roping, haven't used it for sport climbs yet, but it isn't too heavy. Nice for belaying my heavier friends (220lbs).

Solid Gym Rope

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Only used this rope a couple of times, but it works great and it's affordable too. I'm stoked to start using this more in the coming weeks!

Solid rope

This is a solid rope for a really good price. It makes a great option for a gym rope, or for casual climbing outside. The middle marker is a great feature.

Great rope for the price!

Disclaimer, this has been my first climbing season, although I've read up a lot I'm still new to the sport. After buying the Yellow 70m version of this rope I've fallen in love with it! It's one of 3 ropes I own and has been my go to rope, Not too heavy, and the center mark is phenomenal! Lead climbing: it's been great but it does have a good amount of stretch to the rope. Remember it is a dynamic rope, and a good one at that. (Could be what you're looking for, maybe not) Top rope: Awesome job, just enough give that it's soft when you fall but you will loose some ground because of the stretch in the rope (a bit more than my 35M rope I use for short climbs and at the gym). My only complaint is after about 6 different days of solid climbing and using it in groups of about 5-6 people, it has shown some slight wear on the rope in only one place where it was in harsh contact with the wall (no kinks or weak spots in the rope though, in that sense it's very solid). Very minimal and hardly noticed but I would assume it wouldn't last more than a year or two for avid climbers, depending on how well you take care of your rope and how much contact it has with the wall and how you set up your runners. For the price however, you can buy two 70m ropes for $260 (less expensive than almost any single 70m rope I've seen) and have a new rope every other year for 4 years. It's hard to beat that.
