7.8mm Monster 70m Dry
Our 7.8 mm double rope is super light-weight; dry-coated and exhibits excellent physical characteristics. It's low impact force insures maximum energy absorption. It's also great for alpine rock and mixed routes where double rope technique is imperative. Works as a double or a twin rope.

Dry treated and lightweight (38 g) Metolius’ 7.8 Monster rope is ideal for multi pitch alpine or mixed climbing routes. The Monster is as durable as you would expect a 7.8 rope to be, so as long as you’re not rappelling over sharp edges or dropping rocks on it, you’ll be happily climbing for seasons to come.
The dry treatment makes it slippery so rappelling and belaying with gloves is recommended. The Monster can be used as a double or a twin and a bright orange middle tag is highly visible in the dark when you need to find the center of the rope.
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.
