9.5mm Infinity Classic 60m
Sport climbing rope with a small diameter and correspondingly light weight. The 9.5 Infinity Classic features the expected Mammut quality at an attractive price, for flexible handling and top performance in the climbing gym or on natural rock.

Comparison of abrasion test result between Infinity Dry, Protect and Classic.
I was extremely impressed by its handling and performance in all non-specialty scenarios and, from a durability standpoint, it still looked very good after a whole season of climbing. The Infinity sets the bar for the “one-rope quiver” pretty high, and it’ll be exciting to see if this new, thinner generation can top it.
When a respected rope manufacturer sets out to make an all-around cord that is friendly to every type of budget, this is what we call a win-win-win situation. The 9.5mm diameter is ideal for toproping and projecting when it will experience substantial abrasion and abuse, but it’s light enough at 57 g/m that on a 30-meter pitch, you’ll only be dragging about 3.7 pounds behind you at the very top. Testers thought this rope felt and handled like a skinnier cord, too: “It was easy to clip, even in my teeny-tiny ultra-light biners,” one tester said. Because of the Infinity Classic’s excellent all-around performance and bargain-basement price, this rope is ideal for those looking to make the leap into sub-10mm ropes. Mammut saved cost by skipping the dry treatment, which is a pricey process that makes ropes suitable for ice and snow but can be unnecessary for people
in drier climates who stick to only rock. “For handling, durability, and overall feel, this rope competes with the best of the best, and it’s unheard of to offer such a quality line at such a low price,” said another trad and sport climbing user.
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.
