    All aboard the Airliner.

    Use Maxim's superlight Airliner 2X Dry 9.1mm Climbing Rope as a half on alpine routes, or climb mixed, ice, or multipitch with it as a single. Endura Dry 2x treats this rope's sheath and core with water repellency in order to reduce overall water absorption significantly. Like all of Maxim's ropes, you can expect a fluid feel through belay devices, a smooth clip, and a durable, abrasion-resistant performance.

    Rope keeps freezing up

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger and purchasing the Maxim Airliner. It arrived and I was very pleased. I took it out climbing a few times and noticed in small sections that it would freeze up. Rope would be stiff. Then one day, on a challenging climb in cold dry conditions the rope was frozen stiff in sections of a foot or so. I have to force the rope through the ATC. The next day I contacted maxim and explained the situation to them. They said that should not happen but the desired to test my rope to see if the Dry Treatment have not been applied. I sent the rope to them and they tested it. Said it looked good but were kind enough to send me a new rope.
    I went out with the new rope on a snowy day and the rope froze up stiff in 2 to 3 foot sections at a time. Just not acceptable. Other than the rope freezing the feel of the rope is fabulous. It is just too dangerous to use. I will also throw out there that I am living in New England so more moisture in the air than out West?

    Send it!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For an 80m rope this is incredibly light and not so small that you're uncomfortable taking a nice, big whip on it! I usually reserve this rope for send attempts and extra long routes just to preserve it. And if those ends get rough and you have to chop them, you still have a really long rope. Now get it and let the sending begin! ;-)

    Doesn't feel like an 80m rope

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    SO this rope is super supple. Easy to clip and most importantly it's LIGHT! I seriously don't feel like I'm carrying around extra weight when I haul this bad boy around. If you want an amazing light 80 m rope get this one!

    Tickets to the send machine!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Low friction, low weight, but damn durable.

    Had the chance to demo this rope out for a few days in Little Cottonwood canyon and it's changing my mentality on what a rope really should look and feel like.

    We worked some sport lines that had been on the ticklist for years - this thing glides through the belay device and gives THE softest catch i've ever felt. I didn't send, but my buddy did. First class tickets to the anchors.

    We then cooled down a three pitches moderate trad route - a lot of traversing and a section of linked down climbing. We slung our gear long and this rope just smoothly slide through all the biners. The drag reduction is LITERALLY noticeable.

    If I were to get stoked on a sport project and wanted to give myself the best chance, I'm reaching for the airliner.

    Somebody buzz the pilot - I'm getting sendy over here!

    Hello again Alex! How does this rope compare to the pinnacle 9.5mm? I would be using it for big trad projects at Tahquitz, RR, and the south/eastern Sierra. (Aside from the pinnacle, I also have a pair of twins 7.7s). Thank you for your thoughts!

    Michael -

    hello again! I'd say that this rope feels very similar to the 9.5 pinnacle, but definitely noticeably thinner - It has the same low friction and touch to it.

    I suppose to some it may be a bit less confidence inspiring as it is thinner, but to me with the new standard getting thinner and thinner, I felt confident taking falls on it.

    It doesn't come in a bipattern - so we've used it less on routes requires "raps" vs. lowering.
