Fast and light as a feather, the Aero is a skinny 9.2mm rope with smooth handling. Our lightest weight single rope in the Evolution Series, the Aero balances a durable, tough sheath with a new lighter weight core construction. The result is a sending rope with softer handling. Ideal for sport climbing, mixed climbing and ice climbing.

Colorado Mountain School Gear Review no rating given just a review

Although it is unrealistic to expect any one rope to perform well in all of these categories, the Sterling Evolution Aero 9.2mm dynamic rope does a fine job of rising up to the challenge.  Straight out of the box, the Evolution Aero, with its DryCore and DryCoat treatment, shined in ice-climbing, alpine climbing, and mixed climbing across the winter freezes of Colorado.  As the summer climbing season drew on, the same rope was my top choice for multi-pitch rock routes, alpine climbs, and sending sport projects.  From steep alpine cracks of The Diamond to big-wall free climbs in Zion to the overhanging limestone of Rifle, the Aero had an excellent handle and feel that was comforting when making difficult clips.  During falls, the Aero gave a great catch and was easy to hold, inspiring confidence when logging in airtime working a project.    

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.
