Ice Floss 7.7mm Double Dry Twin Rope

The world at altitude demands high quality and low weight. That’s where the Bluewater Ice Floss 7.7mm Double Dry Twin Rope comes into play. Measuring a slim 7.7mm and weighing in at only 38 grams per meter, this ice cord won’t drag you back down to earth. A smooth, single-pick sheath resists catching on features as you hack your way up a frozen waterfall. Should you break loose along with a few stray chunks of ice you can rest assured knowing that an impact force rating of 9.2kN is backing you up.
  • Twin rope designed specifically for extreme alpinism and ice climbs
  • 7.7mm diameter is the skinniest dynamic rope from BlueWater
  • Double Dry treatment protects the sheath and core from water absorption

Love it!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The weight is perfect for carrying and the dry treatment works great! Durability is acceptable. This is the rope I pack 90% of the time for places like the Cables Route up Longs peak and others. I'd use this for glacier travel also.

What would be the belay device of choice for these ropes?

It'll have to be a tubular device like an ATC, and even then I'd wear a glove. It's hard to generate friction with ropes this thin. There's no auto-locking device (like a GriGri or Cinch)that'll grip a rope this thin, unfortunately.

The edelrid mirco jul is rated for twin ropes this thin and is auto-locking

What length is this rope? and what are the advantages/disadvantages of twin ropes over full ropes?

Thanks, so twin ropes would be better for ski mountaineering than a regular single rope?

Careful folks, it's been mentioned in another reply but the comments continue to reference double ropes. Double rope is very different than twin ropes. Read up on this if looking to buy double ropes (aka half ropes) or twins.
