    Pinnacle of performance.

    Maxim made the Pinnacle Bi-Pattern 2X Dry 9.5mm Climbing Rope for the versatile climber who has mastered ice, mixed, or rock at nearby crags or faraway alpine cirques. An unbelievable performance 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 solid performance for seasons. Endura Dry 2x decreases water absorption and increases abrasion resistance significantly, so don't be too afraid of iffy weather conditions. The bi-pattern has high contrast so it will stay vibrantly noticeable after the rope dirties from extended use.

    My Dad Loves It!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This was a birth day give for my Dad and I am so happy with how much use he has gotten out of it already. He climbs in the PNW, so the dry treated rope is a must. The Endura Dry 2x treatment keeps his mind at ease when getting stuck in wet conditions, and it also means he can climb more! He also loves the bright bi-pattern for his "old eyes". I like knowing he is safe on a trusty Maxim rope, and I'm stoked to see him get more into climbing after getting this rope!

    On the 8th day,Maxim Ropes were created!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    One of the things I love about climbing is all the gear. When you want the best rope you have to have one of these in your arsenal. I now have a few and only bring out my other brands of rope when I know I'll be climbing with newbies or my overly sweaty friends.
    The cliche is this rope feels like butta. Well... IT DOES! I have a few different thicknesses and lengths of this brand of ropes and all of my friends love climbing on them. Due to my location, I have used my ropes for sport and multi pitch sport climbing. The ropes have excelled at both. The sheaths have taken a beaten and still look great. The rope almost unkinks itself.

    When you want the Ferrari of ropes, you buy a Maxim. The ease of use, feel in your hands, durability of the sheath, "unkinking ability", and the fact that these rope are so beautifully made, are all reasons why I now only buy Maxim ropes.

    This rope is amazing. It has great performance in weight, durability, and rope handling. I only use this rope for multipitch and use beater ropes for the single pitch cragging. For places like Tahquitz, Eastern Sierra, Needles, and Red Rock Canyon, it is hard to find a better rope!

    This is the rope Alex Honnold trusts, when he does climb with one.

    I got sick of needing to replace my ropes almost every season, and for one season twice in a season, because of lack of durability in sheath construction.

    The pinnacle destroys the comp. - smooth to the feel, supple to the touch, but a workhorse of a rope - even at 9.5 mm. I've taken a handful of good falls on it and the stretch provides a very soft and distinct catch.

    The feel of the rope makes it extremely easy to tie knots, fix lines, hitch etc. The multi-pitch climbers dreeeaammm. Comes out of the pack NOT wanting to tangle and knot up.

    The smooth sheath also reduces, noticeably, drag as it runs through biners. Sometimes, more than i should, forget to sling pieces long on meandering routes, and usually end up with dreadful rope drag. While there is still drag with this rope, its quite significant the difference between it and others.

    The bi pattern is seamless in the middle and vibrant as alllll get out! - bumble bee popping - you'll know both ends are at the same spot.

    No sheath and core slippage because of the dual dry treatment.

    Because of the dry treatment and the weaving on this rope, it packs down extremely small - and at 9.5 mm its quite light for its class.

    Maxim - not to be confused with the magazine - first class!!!

    I have the 60m in this rope. Absolutely love it! What Length do you usually climb with when climbing big(er) wall (> grade III)/alpine? I am having a hard time rationalizing a 70m for my next rope; there have been a few times I wish I had a 70m but most of the time I am glad that I do not have to haul around the extra rope.

    Michael -

    I've started to prefer the 70m for my local crags as a lot of the routes require them.

    For the alpine it's nice because you can stretch pitches out, especially when you are building your own anchors. But 60m is definitely still appealing for the weight savings.

    Love this rope!
