The Climax is not dry treated so you’re limited to climbing with it in the summer and it isn’t the lightest 9.6mm rope on the market, roughly 8 pounds. However, the extra weight serves as extra durability and you’d be really hard-pressed to notice the weight difference from some of its other 9.6mm competitors. The thing that knocks the sheath off from other ropes it the price tag, retailing for roughly $169.00 for a 60 meter length, you’re not going to find a cheaper or better rope in this diameter range, unless it’s on sale.
If you’re looking for a durable rope without forking out the extra dinero the Climax is the best choice in my opinion. You’ll find it in a 60 meter length and a 70 meter length.
The Climax doesn’t seem prone to kinking (at all), thanks to Mammut’s Lap Coiled technology that packages ropes sans tangles. Knots tie and untie well. It handles well through a Grigri and clips easily to biners. Plus, I think it gives a pretty soft catch.
The Climax isn’t the lightest rope around, weighing 64 grams/meter, nor is it the sexiest. But it’s just what I want in a partner: cheap and resilient enough to put up with me and my never-ending failures.
