9.2mm Performance Unicore 60m 2xDry
Performance 9.2 is the hybrid rope that synthesizes the extreme needs of serious climbers. The Performance is certified half, twin and single rope. The Everdry/Supereverdry treatment makes this rope water and abrasion resistant, extending the life of the rope. Now featuring Unicore, the Performance brings even more safety in alpine terrain and enhanced lifetime. Spot, trad, ice and alpine climbers call the Performance when every gram counts and the slightest bit of rope drag can mean the difference between success and failure on the sharp end.

A really good, well handling, durable rope. Not the softest feeling rope out there, but nice to use and hard wearing for a 9.2mm. Light enough (just) to use as a half rope, but better as a skinny single rope for sport or trad. A good buy if you predominantly want a single rope, but might need a half rope occasionally.
A cut sheath on this skinny and super-light cord doesn’t mean disaster anymore with the added protection and stability of Unicore, and its rating as a single, half, and twin means you can use it almost anywhere.
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
