Admittedly, when it comes to ropes, increased diameter and length translate to more weight. The 10.2mm weighs only a fraction more than the 9.8mm, and both are comparable to other manufacturers' ropes of the same diameter and length. Both ropes are durable and have a nice hand when sorting or paying through the belay device. The Monster marking system seems better than black ink that wears off. At $235.00 for the 10.2mm (70 meter, dry) it's easier on the pocketbook than a bi-color rope. Although all climbers should be prudent to pick the right rope for the job, size does matter in the desert. Monster ropes are big, durable and not that heavy. The 10.2mm and 9.8mm cords are a new personal preference for durability and handling on many desert routes and towers.
Pros: Monster Markers that denote the middle and ends of the rope without the price of bi-color, durable
Cons: Heavier than your standard alpine rope
