Climbing Gear Review

The Cristal’s cabled-core technology makes for a light cord offering exceptionally soft, lowimpact- force catches.
Millet’s Hydrophobic Process individually treats each fiber before rope manufacture begins. The result is a water- and abrasion-resistant sheath and core (approximately five percent water retention). Lab tests show that the Hydrophobic treatment holds up well under wear and tear, too.
Millet’s unique rope-folding method prevents those maddening twists that can form when you first uncoil a rope — it’s ready to rock right out of the packaging.
