- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Perfect for gym climbing. I've been using it for leading.
No sheath slippage at all, just as advertised. Hasn't gotten fuzzy.
Plenty lightweight for me. For a 10.5mm it's supple and pays through a belay device very smoothly.
Before i purchase i want to be sure this is not a half rope? Also can this rope be used for outdoor and indoor climbing?
It's a 30m rope, or just under 100 feet. Typically, people I climb with use 60m ropes. The rope is designed to be used in a gym setting where you're confident of wall height. If the route is too long you'll run out of rope and either drop your climber as the end goes through the belay device or not be able to lower them completely to the ground. However, if you're confident that the routes you're climbing are less than 14 meters, you could safely use this rope outside. Just for safety's sake and for versatility, my recommendation would be to purchase a 60m rope if you intend to climb outdoors.
Before i purchase i wanted to be sure that this wasn't a half rope and that it would serve all indoor climbing needs as a stand alone climbing rope?
8-9 is higher better?, on uiaa rated rope,...
8-9 is higher better?, on uiaa rated rope, what is the high and low?
The higher that number, the more falls the rope can take without breaking. So higher is better because it means theoretically your rope will last longer. For a rope to receive UIAA approval, it must be able to take at least 5 falls. Here is a more in-depth explanation: http://www.alpineexposures.com/pages/faq-climbing-ropes-explained-test-uiaa.
