Black Diamond 7.0 Dry Climbing Rope


7.0 Dry Climbing Rope

For alpine climbers and mountaineers concerned about weight and packing space, Black Diamond presents the 7.0 Dry Twin Rope. It weighs a little over four pounds all together, and it's Black Diamond's skinniest line, so it'll definitely pack better than the competition. Despite being light and thin, this climbing rope still features Black Diamond's durable 2 x 2 woven sheath and a dry treatment that excels UIAA's standards for water absorption. This dry treatment no only practically eliminates water absorption in the core, but also adds abrasion-resistance to the sheath.
  • Ultralight twin rope for alpine missions and demanding ice climbs
  • 7.0mm is the skinniest diameter that Black Diamond makes
  • Dry treated sheath and core excel UIAA's water absorption standards
  • Item #BLD00QY

Is this rope sufficient as a single rope for glacier travel?

Hi Brandon. This one is designed to be used in pairs as it does not quite meet the standard for a single rope.
