All that you need
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Reviewing a rope is pretty easy. How did it feel lugging it up the approach, and how did it perform when you're gripped and reaching for a clip. The 9.2 is great for weight reduction. Out of the box, the sheath was nice and smooth which made clipping a breeze. My challenge will be to keep it clean, and keep this rope awesome.

Rad Red Rope
- I've put it through the wringer
Super smooth rope, starts out a bit stiff but will get noodely as soon as you use this a few times. Overall - great quality.

I got sick of hauling a 9.8 around, this 9.2 makes a world of difference.

What belay device can I use with this rope?
April 1, 2015
Hey Folks, Here is a list of belay devices and the diameter ropes that work with them: Petzl Reverso 4 Item # PTZ0317 Dia: 8.9-11mm Comments: The Reverso 4 goes down to an 8.9mm rope but I would not use a worn or seasoned Reverso 4 with this 9.2mm Sterling Evolution Aero Standard rope. Black Diamond ATC Guide Item # BLD1265 Dia: 9-11mm (Single ropes) 7-11mm (Half & Twin ropes) Comments: I'd say this might not be the ideal belay device to pair with this rope since it is on one end of the range. This would be a good device if you plan on using the ropes in a half or twin rope system. Edelrid Mega Jul Belay Device Item # ELR000K Dia: 7.8-10.5mm Comments: This is more the ideal device to pair with this rope as 9.2mm is more in the middle of the range for rope diameters. And the auto-locking feature is a big plus that the other devices don't have. Mammut Wall Alpine Belay Device Item # MAM004D Dia: 7.5-10.5mm Comments: This would be a better alternative to the Reverso4 or the BD ATC Guide if you are not a fan of the Edelrid Mega Jul. Mammut Smart Alpine Belay Device Item # MAM0490 Dia: 7.5-9.5mm Comments: Some folks love this device while others find it to a bit of a paradigm shift in belay technique but similar to the Mega Jul. It takes a bit of getting used to. Shoot me an email anytime you have questions! Jared D. Expert Gearhead 801.736.4336 email@example.com
