From streetside crags to the faraway alpine.
Edelweiss's Excess 9.6mm EverDry Unicore Climbing Rope is strong enough for sport climbing and light enough for alpine routes. At 9.6mm, the Excess is an excellent introduction to intermediate climbers looking for something lighter and more supple. Its Unicore construction bonds the sheath to the core for long-lasting durability and better handling. Edelweiss treated this rope's sheath with EverDry for decreased water absorption and enhanced abrasion-resistance, and there's a mid-rope indicator for faster rappel setups.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I mostly use this rope for sport climbing outdoors and so far it rocks (pun intended)! the 9.6mm size makes it light enough to not be super heavy when climbing or hiking to the crag and just large enough to feel safe when I'm helping teach new climbers/belayers. I've taken a few falls on it and it catches well and the colors are fun too which is always a plus!
The Unicore construction will make it last longer and helps with soft catches while the EverDry treatments keeps it from soaking up water and also helps keep dirt and other things out of it. Definitely recommend it for beginner to intermediate sport climbers looking to get a little more out of their rope.
