Why We Like The Black Diamond 9.9 Climbing Rope

The 9.9 Climbing Rope is Black Diamond's thickest and most durable climbing rope, and it's still versatile for virtually any style of climb. This rope balances the burliness required for big-wall projects with the beginner-friendly handling that new climbers need at the gym. Its Endurance rope boasts hardcore durability against rocky edges, and there's a half mark for easily identifying the rope's center for rigging rappels.


  • Black Diamond's burliest rope for all-around use
  • Thick Endurance sheath is durable and handles easily
  • Half mark identifies rope's center for easy rappelling

Excellent rope

I bought this rope for lead climbing in my local climbing gym. The strength quality in just the feel of the rope is far more superior than others that I have had. I have had zero issues with this rope and recommend it 100% to anyone else..

9.9 Climbing Rope

This is our first rope and so far it has not disappointed. Being new to climbing all I can tell you is it has helped up to the outdoor atmospheres great! It is rugged and has taken some abuse in the field and yet shows no wear. As with all Black Diamond equipment I have purchased it appears to be high quality and exactly what the product descriptions states. I’m would recommend these products for new climbers all around!

Exactly what I need

This is the first rope I've bought, and it is exactly what I hoped for! Took it on two sport climbs this week. It worked great! Seems plenty durable. I bought the 70 meter rope because I wanted to use it for anything, but honestly that was overkill. It's heavier and takes up more space in my gear bag than I realized. I recommend only buying what you plan to use. This is my mistake and I hope you don't make the same one.

Great entry level climbing rope

This is a great rope to get for those just getting into rock climbing and aren’t quite sure what the different verbiage means. It’s a durable rope that has lasted me about 1 year of moderate use on rock climbing trips lasting 2-3 days. 60 m is long enough to where you won’t have to worry about not having enough rope for areas you will probably be visiting as a beginner and can probably carry over to a few more advanced areas as you progress. It’s pretty light weight as well and has been used in mud, rained on, and walked on, but as long as you take care of it where you can, it should last a good while from top rope climbing use and rappelling.

Great Top Rope

We use these ropes as top ropes for our rock wall. They get used all day everyday and last about 6 months.

Great to handle

Beautiful, exactly as described. Used this in J tree for a few days as it's first outing - fed through belay devices really well, seems pretty durable against the sharp rock, but time will tell if it keeps holding up.

Great gym rope (40m)

Not much to say, the 9.9 is the perfect rope to beat up at the climbing gym.

Thick Sheath Offers Way Better Results

This rope is perfect. The sheath is tighter-wrapped than most of the ropes I have climbed on. This sheath is the highlight for me and is likely why I will return to this rope when I retire from my current one. The quality of the rope is fantastic.
