10.1mm Xion 60m Dry
The XION is our toughest all-around rope. The 10.1 mm diameter is extra durable and the weave is specially designed to offer an excellent hand and a suppleness similar to that of thinner ropes. In addition, the XION has 22% more sheath by weight than comparable ropes in the Petzl lineup. The XION is great for those who want the increased longevity of a larger-diameter rope without sacrificing ease of handling.

In truth, I’d already decided this was an excellent rope, which should appeal to a wide range of folks. Beginners will appreciate how tough it is, as it should last for several seasons before you need to upgrade. Sport climbers can use it as a beater project rope that can take the abuse of repeated hangdogging, falls and TR sessions. Or if you want a well balanced all arounder that can handle everything from multipitch climbing to ice and will still feel dreamy at the sport crag, the XION just might be the rope for you.
This rope proved itself again and again as solid for everything from toproping vertical pitches to projecting overhanging sport routes. One satisfied tester called the Xion his “first choice” out of the three cords he tested. It handled easily and was very flexible, especially for its size; other ropes around this diameter were stiffer and a bit more unruly. Nice touch: The rope comes from the shop ready to flake out—no specialized uncoiling or tedious untangling required.
