Beal 8.1mm Ice Line Unicore 70m Rope

Beal 8.1mm Ice Line Unicore
Beal 8.1mm Ice Line Unicore

Already considered to be the must-have rope for ice climbers and expert alpinists alike for its extreme fluidity and very low impact force, ICE LINE is henceforward available with the new UNICORE technology. Thanks to adherence of the core and sheath, ICE LINE benefits from extra security – indispensable on thin rope.

The thinness of the rope gives it exceptionally easy running, but also demands appropriate and specific belaying technique. It's in Golden Dry that this exceptional rope really comes into its own. Used as 2 strands of 60 m, it allows for long runouts, but also to retain sufficient length even if you have to cut the ends of rope damaged by crampons or axe.
• The weight and free-running of twin rope plus the advantages of a double rope.
• Ultra low impact force.
• The rope doesn't bunch and stays flexible for the long term.
• Has all the advantages of the UNICORE technology.
