Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this rope! The 70M is 1.2 pounds lighter than the Sterling Aero (9.2mm) or Fusion Ion (9.4mm) according to my scale at home. Those pounds make a big difference on long, multi-hour alpine approaches. The thin diameter significantly reduces rope drag too. I originally only used this sparingly for multipitch climbs, but when a large, loose block fell on my rope and severed the sheath, I used the remaining 30M for gym climbing and whipped on this bad boy weekly for over 8 months before finally retiring it. It's more durable than you think!! Now I've got a fresh 70M bi-color and a fresh 60M bi-color ready for future adventures!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Had high hopes for this rope -- been using Sterling and Maxim ropes, and thought I'd give Mammut a try given how popular they are. Came back from a weekend at Trinity Aretes, CA and was pretty disappointed. The rope was very, very stiff out of the bag. Not very supple on the handle, making it a bit cumbersome to belay and to clip as a lead climber. The rope is also a bright, single-colored neon red, not the patterned one as shown in the photo above.

Thus far, I like the way the Maxim Airliner 9.1mm and Sterling Aero 9.2mm handle and feel over the Mammut Revelation.

Wow - these belay pants are amazing. Super toasty. and easily fits over my climbing pants in a snap (yes, they're sized large for this purpose). I used to always fear "sending temps" because belaying was so painful -- not any more! These things pack so easily into my crag bag, and you know they're great when ALL of my climbing partners ask to wear them when it's their turn to belay lol. I am 5'8 and 150 lbs and the Small fit me perfectly. These are also great for photography when the temps dip, or just hanging out at the campsite when it's frigid. The material is nice and smooth, making it super easy to throw over pants. Probably one of the best purchases I made in 2018 - so stoked about these.
