Fusion Photon DryXP Climbing Rope

The Fusion Photon DryXP Climbing Rope is Sterling's lightest, thinnest rope that's dual-certified as a half or twin, and this dry-treated option is especially ideal for ice and mixed multi-pitches. The DryXP treatment is Sterling's first dry treatment to meet UIAA's standards for eliminated water absorption. Sterling achieved this by treating both the core and sheathe to repel moisture, and this treatment also amps abrasion-resistance if you're climbing rock.


  • Half or twin rope for climbing ice, mixed, or multi-pitch rock
  • 7.8mm diameter is Sterling's lightest and thinnest
  • DryXP treatment offers UIAA-certified water resistance
  • Item #STE002K
