A rope is a rope, and I’m still not picky about which rope I use while climbing. As long as I can belay easy, clip carabiners quickly and not die when I fall, then the rope is good in my book. So I certainly can recommend the Mammut Tusk for anyone looking for a good, all-around climbing rope for day trips on local crags.
