Ultra-light thin rope for elite climbers:
- allows optimal functioning in the belay device
- multi-standard for use as a single, half or twin rope
- for use in rock, mixed, snow or ice environments
Greater longevity and ease of use in any conditions:
- Duratec Dry treatment: dry treatment makes the rope more resistant to water, dirt and abrasion; handling, grip and other characteristics are retained longer in cold, wet conditions
- UltraSonic Finish: the core and the sheath are bonded together at the rope ends by an ultrasonic process called UltraSonic Finish; gives greater durability and avoids frayed ends
- ClimbReady coil: specific coil makes the rope ready for use; helps the user avoid initial uncoiling mistakes and increases longevity
More effective belaying:
- Middle Mark: indicates the middle of the rope to facilitate maneuvers
- EverFlex treatment: special thermal treatment stabilizes the core strands and improves consistency; offers excellent grip and consistent handling over time

Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 4/5

This rope was widely liked among our testers and the climbers we polled. Its low weight, supple hand, and smooth catch make for a pleasurable climbing experience. It just missed winning our Top Pick award for skinny alpine/sending rope, losing to the lighter and thinner Sterling Nano IX.

We found that we did not like the black color of our test rope. Not only does it not stand out well in photos, but it made it very difficult to find the middle-mark, especially in low light situations. If possible, we suggest choosing the orange version of this 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.
