Great little rope for Canyoneering
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought the 70m rope and cut it in half so I could have a 115ft 8mm rope for short rappels or other various rope work for Canyoneering, Caving, Mining, and Climbing. I haven't had the chance to use it yet, but I now have the rope when I need it.
4275 lbf./ 19kN

the description says "accesspry cord" + "stiffer"....?!?
This is not a good rope for rappelling. This rope is used as a pull cord for single-stranded rappels. As a pull cord, the rope works great. But I have a tough time carrying a rope that I can't use to rappel. I recommend the Canyon Pro Dual Sheath if you need to rappel from it - http://www.backcountry.com/blue-water-canyon-pro-dual-sheath-rope-8mm

I wanted to find a good lightweight haulline...
I wanted to find a good lightweight haulline for trad multipitch day routes with light packs. I haven't had any luck. Is this a good choice or is there something else out there I should look into?
This tag line is pretty stiff so it can be pulled easily after abseiling, but can make it a bit difficult to organize at a belay on multipitch routes. I've used this as a tag line for extra gear on big walls and find it ideal for that purpose as the lightweight static rope makes hauling light loads a breeze (I use the Black Diamond lightweight pulley).
