soft but durable

I've used it several times
True to size

this rope is very soft to the touch but in my opinion the width of the rope is perfect and ir runs very smoothly through my black dimond pilot, as well as having a confortable fit in my hand ( and mouth) while cliping. I would defenetley recomend this ripe specialy in the price area.

Frayed really fast

I've used it several times

Bought because of the price, took it out on maybe 5 routes on limestone (no sharp ledges Or anything) looked over it the next day and there was considerable fray. Not a great rope for projecting routes, I’m just going to suck it up and get better rope next time.

Good Rope for amazing price

I've used it several times

I bought this rope last year during a sale for $130 and for that price its amazing. Good quality, hasn't snapped and is a good balance between weight and thickness. Can beat sub $150 70m rope!

I bought a 40m for gym use and it's been holding up great so far. Does glide a little to fast though a GriGri for my liking, but you can't really beat the price.

Hard to beat for the price

I've used it several times

Great rope for the price. Soft and handles well from the beginning. The untreated sheath seems to "pill" more than I'm used to. Wasn't sure if I was going to like the yellow but the retro look has grown on me.

Great Rope, Great Price

I've used it several times

I bought this rope in the yellow 70 meter. I have used 9.1mm up to 10.5mm ropes and I think the 9.8mm is a good in between. It's not too thick and heavy to drag up multi-pitches, but also not so thin that you need a belay device that will accommodate thinner ropes. I like that it has the middle marker, without the added price of a bi-pattern rope. Overall, I am really happy with this rope so far. I fell and it caught me (with the help of my belayer), so that's always a good sign.


How long will this rope last? Is it durable even at its price point?
