9.5mm Infinity 60m 2xDry
The classic among Mammut® single ropes now comes in three different treatment categories! The top climbers from the Mammut Pro Team particularly appreciate the very balanced properties of the proven 9.5 Infinity with it’s perfect combination of small diameter, low weight and high performance. The DRY treatment guarantees long lasting protection from dirt and water.

Overall the Mammut Infinity is a great all-round rope for intermediate climbers. It is tough enough to withstand the level of use of someone who goes sport climbing on a fairly regular basis, and mixes it up with onsighting and redpointing.
Perhaps a little too heavy for super hard onsights and redpoints and not quite durable enough to withstand long, hard working sessions where many falls will be taken repeatedly onto the rope, the Infinity is more suited to those looking for a good all-round rope, for general sport cragging.
The name Infinity does a good job of indicating the outstanding level of durability that you can expect from this slim cord. But it is also the solid performance it offers in low weight, catch, and handling that make it such a well balanced rope and our Editors' Choice winner. There are many other ropes out there that might surpass the Infinity for one particular application, but none of them can match the consistent benefits across a range of disciplines. If you can only have one rope, you can't do any better than the Mammut Infinity.
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.
