- 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.

Best of the best.
No other rope company comes close to the Bluewater's double dry treatment, and if you are using these for ice, you will definitely appreciate this. This is not just a topical dry treatment like most companies that wears off after a couple of sessions.... this is treatment permeates the core of the rope, making for a WAY BETTER dry treatment. These ropes aren't just for iceclimbing though, they are great for Alpine climbing when you need two ropes to get back down, or for other double rope techniques. Best of All, Bluewater is an American Made, and Family owned company, so you know that your money is going. Bluewater has the best quality control in the business, and every inch of every ropes is hand inspected before it goes out the door. Bluewater makes hands down the best ropes on the planet.

The reviewer should be more careful with the words he uses, this rope is a twin and is not built to withstand the fall forces possible in "other double rope techniques". Twin ropes must be clipped to every piece, while double/half ropes may be alternated.

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.

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.
