    An ultralight, multi-standard climbing rope to get you up anything.

    Petzl got its Volta Dry Climbing Rope certified for use as a single, twin, or half rope so you can climb crags, ice, big walls, or mixed alpine routes with the same rope. The Volta sports a skinny 9.2-millimeter diameter and an ultralight weight (55 grams per meter) to keep elite climbers content. Petzl treated this rope with a Duratec dry treatment to resist water, dirt, and abrasion, and the treatment also provides better rope grip and handling in cold, wet conditions. This rope also has an UltraSonic finish to bond the core and sheathe together in order to eliminate frayed ends and enhance the Volta's overall durability. Its middle mark will help you find the center of the rope for quicker descents, and the ClimbReady coil lets you uncoil this rope out of its bag without big tangles.

    Slinky and Orange!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this rope! Bought the 30-m for the gym and it is lightweight, slinky, and feels really good—I bought a second one for when my first wears out because it's that good.If you're looking for a good gym rope, this is it (just make sure you get one long enough, my local gym is short).

    Very good rope

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rope feels very good, does not burn your hands when it rubs against your skin (e.g. when clipping high with a lot of rope drag) and is very light.

    Its supple nature makes it surprisingly prone to get tangled up spontaneously though, which can be annoying sometimes. Seriously, flake it *often*.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great feel and durability. Packs up nicely and the lighter weight make this my favorite rope. Used it for a week in Tuolumne meadows and its still like new.

    My favorite rope

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been climbing on the Volta 9.2 80m for the past year and have not had to cut the ends yet (despite taking many falls sport and trad climbing). It handles extremely well (no kinks) and does not get fuzzy over time like many of my other ropes have in the past. It's incredibly durable, light, and supple- it handles perfectly with the GriGri. It can feel slick initially (the first few climbs) but I've never had any problems with this diameter.

    Best Rope on the Market

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Petzl ropes are the best ropes available today. And, the Volta is perhaps my favorite. This cord is virtually weightless . . . using one feels like cheating, almost. This is my cord of choice for ice climbing, giant sport-mixed link-ups, rock climbing redpoints, and alpine climbing. I have beaten on Volta cords of all lengths, 60 meters, 70 meters, 80 meters, 100 meters in all types of climbing, from M10 Traditional Mixed, M14 Sport Mixed and demanding Alpine first ascents, and they hold up and perform better than any other rope I have ever used - and I've used them all: Sterling heavy cables, Mammut delicates, Beal rubber bands (so scary), BlueWater rubber bands (also scary), etc. Nothing else even comes close. If I had to choose one cord, it might be this one . . . or the Arial . . . or the Contact. Thankfully, one can have one of each. I think it's a good idea for the belayer, especially one who is belaying a heavy partner, to put two Petzl Attache locking carabiners on the belay loop and through the rope when belaying with a Petzl Reverso to increase drag on the catch . . . the same applies to rappelling. These sleek ropes are simply unbelievably good.

    She's got it all

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rope is a dream to use and the best rope i've come across as of yet. It's thin and super light! It's not too thin to the point where it's difficult to repel with or belay, but just thin enough so that it goes through the ATC and grigri with minimal friction. The rope feels great in your hands and it's also really light in handling and overall weight. I've taken a few falls with this rope and it stretches well. I would highly recommend this product.

    Right at Home on the Glacier

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Just got back from summiting Rainier with the puppy and I have only good things to say. Its as thin as you can go while still safely using a single rope, which is ideal for glacier travel where a crevasse fall is a possibility, but a lot of technical ice climbing is not on the menu.

    The water treatment is bomb proof, and two storms + a day of dragging over wet snow did not even begin to faze our little lifeline.

    For really bottoming out on weight, this rope is clutch. Remove it from bag and the supple ripples will rip your heart right out. Plus, none of those pesky mountaineering coils to deal with when you're flaking for the first time.

    Edit April 2015: Have now used this for vertical ice as well. Still only great things to say. Climb on my friends.
