Skinny and strong.
The 9.4 Climbing Rope is Black Diamond's skinniest line that's certified solely for for single use. It's a balance between lightness and durability that advanced climbers look for whether they're projecting sport or trad. Its 9.4mm diameter is at once supple and strong to slide through carabiners without much rope drag and still take a surprising amount of falls. Since it sits on the skinnier side, this rope is a great option for the occasional alpine approach as long as the rocks are dry.

Honest Rope at an Honest Price
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The old BD 9.2 & 9.6 sucked. This is not those ropes.
I bought the 80m to use in the desert to avoid two rope shenanigans on long single pitch routes.
This is one of the best priced 80m ropes on the market and is a big part of why I picked it up. This rope has a nice blend of good handling, but burly enough to stand up to the use in the desert.
very lightweight, I ordered the 80m version and was still surprised to see that is was very light.
