    High-end sport climbing calls for the fluid-yet-tough Silver TRX Climbing Rope by Millet. TriAxiale technology raises safety, longevity, and efficiency, and the 9.8mm diameter offers a smooth belay and a light lead. Millet's Anti-Friction treatment increases abrasion-resistance against sharp edges and rough rocks. The middle marker makes for easy rappels, and the Anti-Twist Pack uncoils the rope without a problem.

    Millet Silver review from gearinstitute

      Read the full review here - http://www.gearinstitute.com/climbing/ropes/item/millet-silver-triaxiale

      The Millet Silver Triaxiale is a lightweight 9.8mm rope for sport climbing with a Triaxiale braided core and Anti-Friction treatment. The rope is available in 60, 70, and 80 meter lengths and two colors: green and orange.

      Handling

      In testing, the Silver Triaxiale was one of the most popular ropes in terms of handling. The rope fed smoothly through belay devices, knotted with ease, and provided confident catches during falls. Over the life of the rope, the handling characteristics remained favorable, in part due to the rope’s great durability.

      Resistance to Dirt
      
Millet treated the rope with their Anti-Friction technology which is intended to offer resistance to dirt and abrasion. This treatment kept the rope cleaner than many other ropes tested. The bright color of the rope did eventually fade with use, which is pretty common with well used ropes.

      Durability

      The rope features Millet’s Triaxiale braided core technology, which is intended to increase the longevity of the rope. In tests, the rope’s sheath held up great despite repeated abuses during desert tower climbs and on sharp limestone sport routes. Additionally, the core of the rope retained its positive feel and handling characteristics.

      Features
      
The rope has a black middle mark that was useful when setting up rappels. However with dirt and wear, the mark faded and it quickly became one of the harder middle marks for testers to find. Handling and durability are the best features of this rope.

      Weight

      At 62 grams per meter, the Silver Triaxiale was lighter than many other 9.8mm ropes tested.

      Versatility
      The Silver Triaxiale is a versatile rope that will find favor with sport climbers looking for a durable, workhorse rope for redpoint work sessions. Meanwhile, trad climbers will appreciate the balance between lightweight and toughness found in this 9.8mm rope while being resistant to dirt and abrasion thanks to the Anti-Friction treatment.

      Looks great after heavy use

        I got this rope for an AMGA Rock Guide course and was super happy with it. It did everything well from short roping to a long Lumpy Ridge day. Prior to the course I climbed on it a lot. My 15 year old daughter said it was pretty and she's an expert. She belayed and lowered me repetitively in order to maximize laps before the park rangers got grouchy. My son spent time hanging on this rope while I practiced transitioning from lower to raise mode. Thanks guys, love you! The rope was still pretty when I arrived in Eldorado Canyon for the course and I was commended for bringing a new one. It is obvious that the long climbing history and spirit of the Alps is built into this product.

        Supple and SUPER durable

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Millet is the only company out there that is braiding their ropes at the moment. This means that the core stands are internally braided together, which essentially places each core strand more precisely while creating a tighter pack of the core. I liken it to doing a really good job packing your car for a road trip vs a poor job. When you pack it well and tight, everything is snug and doesn't jostle around, no friction created. When you just throw Sh*t in your car and drive, stuff moves around, falls, breaks, etc. This is like the inside of a rope. With a braided core, everything is very tightly packed. Friction is lessened under normal usage, thus the core fibers are not degraded as fast, thus the rope lasts longer! This, coupled with the anti-friction treatment gives you a burly, supple rope that slides like butter through a device. One last cool thing about Millet ropes is their ability to resist kinking, since the ropes are packaged "flaked" (called the "anti-twist pack"). As such, before they are unpackaged and used, they are not being held in an abnormal way compared to how they lay on a rope bag. There are no strange kinks... It's a simple concept that really works.
