- Q & A
Great ropes, right out of the package they feel supple and soft. They are very easily distinguished from each other with their bold color difference. Dry coating seems pretty effective in keeping them from freezing up too badly ice climbing. As far as using them for multipitch rock, they are great but realize that they will wear much more quickly than a standard 9.4+mm climbing rope. Still worth it to have them in the rope pile!
Bought matching 30m ropes, which allows for significant versatility. This rope is great for ski mountaineering. Itâs light weight, dry treated, and has a good feel. It is easy to just throw the rope in my bag on days were we have unknown challenges, raps, or semi technical/exposed ahead. TBD on durability.
