From ice to rock.
This version of Maxim's Pinnacle 2x Dry Climbing Rope is particularly useful in the ice/mixed category, but it will exceed expectations on any wall. An unbelievable performance capability separates the Pinnacle from most high-end, professional-grade ropes. The sheath runs smoothly through belay devices and clips into small carabiners with ease. Pair that with Endura Dry's 2x treatment on the core and sheathe, and you can enjoy this rope's durability for seasons. Durable Dry 2x decreases water absorption and increases abrasion resistance significantly, so don't be too afraid of iffy weather conditions or snowy bases.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This rope is smooth like butter. Actually butter isn’t nearly as smooth as this rope so it deserves its own category. Perfect for a lot of different applications and so far had taken quite a bit of abuse really well. Like the reviewer before me said, catches like a dream and the 2x treatment gives me confidence tossing it out all year long. Awesome craftsmanship by maxim!
Used this rope for 3 seasons!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This model of rope was the first rope I ever owned. Having just started climbing, and knowing what was at stake (MY LIFE) I put down the extra bucks for the top of the top. Oh the places this rope has taken me!
While not necessarily recommended - but i have a log book for my ropes - and this rope managed to survive through 3 pretty long seasons, thanks to the accompaniment of another rope as my "project" rope.
The sheath held amazingly to the day I DECIDED to retire (it still had the looks of its youth) - and the feel of this thing, like other Maxim ropes is outstanding. 2 times dry treatment meant it was in its place ice top roping in Ouray to climbing towers in the desolate desert.
The low friction and tight weave on the sheath makes it perfect for sending routes and feels like butter running through any belay device. With just enough elongation, this thing gives the best soft catches of any rope I've owned!
Save your money in the long run! These things are durability at its finest!
does this rope have a middle mark
This rope won't have a middle mark. For ropes that don't have a middle mark, you can always use item # BEA0018 to mark any rope yourself.
