Chalk Line was specifically developed for the punishment gyms inflict on rope. Whether you have a small gym or big wall the Chalk Line can take the constant falls, and belays. The Str8 Jacet Core allows the Chalk Line to hold its shape and keep the cover and core in balance which virtually eliminates sheath Slippage. This will reduce flat spots and help maintain the performance of the over all rope. At 10.8mm or 10.2mm the Chalk Line will provide a safe easy belay through a variety of devices while still maintaining its shape.

Rock and Ice Gear Review rating 4/5

The Chalkline is at the upper end (9.7 kN) for impact force compared to most single ropes, though still within CE standards. The Chalkline comes in 10.2 and 10.8mm. I tested the 10.8. After a few seasons of carrying ultra-skinny (down to 8.9mm) cords I was immediately struck by the rope’s hefty 77.8 grams per meter—I’d pick a lighter cord for backcountry cragging, or for rope-stretching pitches where weight is a factor. As a super burly, durable “everyman’s” rope, though, the Chalkline is hard to beat, literally.
