For when light and fast is key
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This rope is clutch for alpine adventures, traverses, and the like. I used this on a very moderate ridge link up where i needed a rope for a few short stretches of harder climbing, and then it was either packed away or used simul climbing.
It works great as a single line, even for it's diameter, and I've thought that if i ever had to climb a pitch with it that would expose the rope to any sharp edges or a any spots that could cause wear, I could just tie into both ends and have my partner belay me like twin ropes, and have him tie in with a bight to second.
A very versatile tool for the alpine and for long approaches where weight matters - It's also dry treated and ready to rock.
