    Marathon Sport Dry Rope

    The Sterling Marathon Sport 10.4mm Rope is sure to be your bread-and-butter line whether you always use the same rope or have a box full of them. Incredibly durable sheath construction and excellent handling characteristics make the Marathon Sport an ideal rope for both crag-side clip-ups and long trad climbs. The Marathon is burly enough to withstand a few routes up the Big Stone, but it is more at home protecting your butt on a long runout than dealing with jumars and hauling.
    • Beefy climbing rope designed with big walls and runouts in mind
    • Massive 10.4mm diameter ensures plenty of durable strength
    • Dry treated for water-resistance
    • Thick sheath handles the hard abuse of big wall climbs
    • Item #STE0019

    My crag rope

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I decided to write this review because I will finally retire this rope. This rope was my crag rope for the last 4 years. If I had to conservatively guess, I was using it on average once a week depending on who brought their ropes out. The more I used it, the more I was surprised by its durability since it has such a great hand. Unlike the modern rope trend right now, it is a little thicker and a little heavier, but I may buy it again even though I already have the Marathon Pro (10.1). Great hand. Fantastic durability. Excellent beater rope.


      The Sterling Marathon series are great ropes. My first was the Marathon Ultra 10.8, i think, and was a real workhorse. It held a lot of falls and took a lot of drag. I eventually cut about 15 feet off each end and continued using it. Now I use it for hanging TRs. I just got the Marathon sport in green this fall and enjoyed using it just as much. For my money I'll take a big rope that is gonna hold up, how many of us really need a sub 10mm rope?

      Good value..

        Burly rope. Though the description states it's better for free climbing than wall climbing, I gotta say it has lasted through some pretty long wall rts in Canada - wet, loose, sharp crystals everywhere - I still use the same cord for working hard free climbs!

        Hello, I am jsut starting back climbing...

        Hello, I am jsut starting back climbing after a 15 year break and am looking to replace my old gear. I live in the southest and will be starting back sport climbing and top roping primarily sandstone routes. So, I have a lot of questions, but for now as far as the rope is concerned, is the Sterling Marathon Sport a good choice?

        Tim this is a great choice. I think anything between 10 and 10.5mm is a good option for primarily toproping and doing a bit of leading for shorter routes. This rope feels particularly nice in the hand for being as fat as it is and I'd say you can't go wrong.
