    Infinity Protect Climbing Rope

    At its core Mammut is a rope company, so it is no surprise that the brand continues to produce lighter, better performing, and more durable ropes season after season. The Infinity Protect 9.5mm Climbing Rope strikes a balance between weight and durability. This light line has a weight of just 58 g/m, so it won't weigh you down on multi-pitch routes and will perform well when on-sighting sport climbs. Mammut's Protect technology increases the rope's abrasion resistance and lifespan under heavier use.

    • Classic rope constructed for most styles of rock climbing
    • Skinny 9.5mm diameter designed for experienced belayers
    • Protect treated sheath enhances abrasion-resistance
    • Item #MAM00DC

    Phenomenal rope

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Mammut ropes are great ropes. I'm impressed with the durability and performance. I'm very happy with my purchase and I'd recommend mammut to anyone looking for a quality product with exceptional performance.

    Reliable Rope!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have the 40m, and it is the perfect gym rope. It's light, feeds smoothly, and can take a fall. I've been using mine for nearly a year now and average at least one lead session a week, and it's showing no signs of wear.

    Would not recommend

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm posting this for the benefit of others using this rope (or other Mammut ropes) or those considering purchasing this rope. My '70m' Infinity rope has shrunk roughly 10% with use. This means that I am no longer able to safely use this rope for my local routes set up with anchor distances in mind for 70m ropes. I found out about this 'shrinkage' the hard way, needing to solo down climb the last few meters of a route to get back to the ground as the rope did not quite make it. This was a route in a very popular climbing area that many people lower/rappel off of using standard 70m ropes. After contacting Mammut, their customer service informed me that it is quite normal for a rope to shrink from 5-10% and so they cut them 2.5% longer to guarantee the stated rope length. In their own words, then, they don't really guarantee that the rope will be the stated length and told me that it's my responsibility to measure my rope before every use. I did double check that I bought a 70m line and at some point it did indeed function as advertised. In the end, I'm a dissatisfied customer and will not be buying from Mammut again.

    Both dynamic and static ropes shrink, but will also stretch back out if loaded. My experience covers 50 years, and Mammut, Sterling, Edelrid, Bluewater, Goldline and MSR (Penberthy) ropes. (These were brands I owned, I believe my comments probably apply to other brands as well.) How much each rope shrank and stretched varied, but my impression is the variation was the result of many factors such as cross section, use factors such as temperature and moisture, manufacturing techniques, materials, and so forth. I had the opportunity to carefully examine the shrinking and stretching of a 150 ft Bluewater II static rope used for abseiling and prusiking into and out of limestone caverns. The rope got quite dirty and I would wash it often, in a rotary washing machine. After washing in cold water and air drying, the rope would shrink about 6 ft (4%). If I hung the rope so the full length was deployed (less 4 ft for tying off) and abseiled on it once (I weighed 220 in those days) the rope would stretch about 4 ft. After further use it would stretch a bit more. I realize certain types of climbing (gym and sport) and the popularity of many climbing areas have resulted in the regularizing of routes so that it is possible to plan precisely what gear is needed. I suggest you do what an old and now retired caver and alpine climber learned to do - always carry extra stuff to deal with unexpected events and situations. Ropes longer than "needed" really make sense. The need to rig alternative anchors or use a modified belay position often arises. Eventually, the rope ends will likely need dressing or an essential sling must be cut from the main rope :-). In any case, stay safe. BTW, Ivan Carlson's comment is inappropriate and he displays faulty reasoning.

    Best 70m for the Price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had mine for 2 years now and have put it through the wringer. Nothing out side of normal wear. Great weight, super smooth, one of my favorite ropes.

    Supple, silky smooth, no kinks.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love this rope! It's as supple & silky smooth as you could find in any rope out of the box and since (11/23/14)! No kinks. My other rope is the Edelrid Eagle Pro 9.8mm - also supple & smooth but nowhere close to this Mammut Infinity. And hands down, Backcountry & REI are the best places to get your climbing gear!

    A great upgrade in durability!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Infinity Protect is a great first step into treated ropes. The sheath is treated making it 40% more durable than non treated ropes. The core is still untreated, keeping the price down. The slimmer 9.5 diameter will keep weight down and work with pretty much any ATC. 40m for gym use and the 60m, 70m, and 80m for even the longest routes. If you need a rope that will last even longer and work in wet conditions look at the Infinity Dry ropes or contact me and I can help you find the right rope for your needs. Take a look at the attached photo for a great example of the durability of the Infinity line. The photo shows the Classic (top), Protect (mid), and Dry (bottom) after being run over a sharp edge 200 times.

    A great upgrade in durability!

    The sheath is the same on the Protect and the Dry... Why would the treated core of the Dry cause the sheath to wear any differently than the Protect? They have the same sheath, so the wear should be the same. The bottom wasn't worn at all so I don't think it's fair to assume that the Dry would withstand abrasion better than the Protect, right?

    Perfect for desert climbing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This has become my favorite rope for climbing at Indian Creek and for desert towers around Moab. I like a slightly thinner diameter cord for sport climbing, but I want a little more durability for desert climbing. The Infinity feels substantial enough to give some peace of mind, but it's still light. I especially like the hand of Mammut ropes, particularly as they age--they never get limp and yarnlike.

    To Infinity and Beyond

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This rope is great for everything from single pitch red-point projects to long multi pitch days. It is super supple running through your belay device and offers a great soft catch. With a light weight feel, middle marker, and multiple lengths, this rope has an option for everyone!

    If you’re looking into ropes and are looking for a recommendation, give me a call or shoot me an email and I’d be happy to help you out with some recommendations. I have climbed on a lot of ropes on the site and have used almost every Mammut rope on the market!

    Great rope so far!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just upgraded to this rope after retiring my mammut eternity rope that I've used for the past two years. So far I've only used this rope on one trip, but here's what I've noticed:
    The Infinity has the same butter smooth handling that I grew to love with the Eternity (and seems to be unique to Mammut ropes). It coiled a bit due to user error, but was easy to unkink and didn't loop over itself much. It is noticeably lighter than its 9.8 counterpart, which is great for long approaches/pitches, but still has an excellent fall rating. I'm really liking it so far!

    LOVE this rope!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had this rope nearly a year now. Absolutely love it. I travel a bit, so the size is perfect for me. I would buy it again in a heartbeat!

    Great Rope

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I picked up an Infinity 70m as my go-to trad rope. It's relatively lightweight, handles well, and is holding up great despite being dragged over some sharp edges on a couple of meandering routes. I've taken a whipper or two on the Infinity and it has a nice, stretchy catch.

    Great Rope for the Price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just picked this rope up and overall I am really impressed. I have climbed on Mammut ropes for years and really like them. Compared to my old Tusk the feel and quality are still there. This rope is more supple than most mammut ropes, and clips well right out of the packaging. My only real complaint is some weird flat spots in the core, I have felt this on a few other mammut ropes as well recently. Not sure what the deal is. Otherwise I love this thing. Will updated after the summer to report on durability.

    This Rope is Amazing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is my first Mammut rope. I've used Sterling and Blue Water in the past for rappelling and caving and as I'm moving into sport and trad climbing I wanted a really nice dynamic rope that was thinner than I'd been using. Heard great things about Mammut so when this went on sale I grabbed it.

    Been using it with friends and kids at the local crag and I've only fallen once and it was a nice soft catch. The rope feeds very smoothly through my ATC and knots are easy to tie and untie after loaded. I'd buy another of these when the time comes.

    This Rope is Amazing

    My favorite rope!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rope has it all. It is lightweight, but still just thick enough to give you confidence. The protective coating really holds up well to some of the granite I've drug this thing over. I still have not taken a fall on this one yet (maybe it's my lucky rope). "I have a friend" who hang-dogs on this rope and says it is dynamic, bouncy and would probably catch a fall soft.

    To infinity and beyond!

      The Mammut infinity is my first rope, so it's hard to compare closely with others. So far, I've used this rope sport climbing in New Hampshire on weekend trips and during a week long climbing trip at Smith Rock State Park in Oregon. The infinity is super light, and kind of stretchy. I have yet to test it in the rain or other wet conditions, but I'm sure the dry coat will definitely contribute to the longevity of the rope. I've only had the infinity for a few months, and despite all the use, it looks about as good as new. Great overall rope!

      To infinity and beyond!

      Great rope

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      My boyfriend purchased this as a light rope to use on climbs where he wants to climb light and fast. He used it on a climbing trip to Alaska and he said it was great, the protect coating definitely prevented it from getting wet. They used an old dry coated climbing rope as well and by the end of the day that rope was twice as heavy as his Infinity Protect. Great rope by Mammut!

      Great rope

      Is the protect coating for durability only, or does it offer dry protection as well? It doesn't openly say either way.

      Yes, it does both. Dry coating and durability. There are three categories of ropes Mammut makes now. In this order: Classic (untreated), Protect (treated sheath) and Dry (treated core and sheath). You can learn more about the details on Mammut's site.

      Does this rope have the COATINGfinish PTFE treatment applied to the sheath and core? And is this a dry treatment or only for reducing friction?

      Best Answer


      This rope has a durability treatment applied to the sheath of the rope. This will increase the abrasion resistance of the rope and increase durability. While the coating does have water-repellent properties, that is not the purpose of the rope. It's still not qualified as a dry rope and I wouldn't treat it as such.

      The end result of the PROTECT treatment is similar in function to the COATINGfinish that Mammut previously used.
