How to use Edelrid rope, safety, storage, transport, care, lifespan and replacement with instructional pictures.
8.6mm Canary Pro 70m 2xDry
Our ultra-light, high-end rope with triple certification. With its 8.6 mm diameter and weighing in at just 51 g per metre, the Canary is one of the thinnest and lightest single ropes in its class. The thicker sheath proportion makes it the most robust lightweight rope on the market.
- Not suitable for working routes or top roping
- Water absorption less than 2% as per UIAA Water Repellent Test
- 3D lap coiled so you can use it straight away, without kinking and tangling
The versatility, durability, and weight of the Canary 8.6 is almost unmatched which allows it to excel as an alpine rope. With a triple certification, this rope is also highly versatile and can be used in many different ways. Since I tested this rope over the summer months I was only able to get miles of rock climbing out of it, but come winter and spring I will be pushing the Canary 8.6 into mixed, ice, and snow climbing. With my experience with the rope up to this point, I predict the Canary 8.6 will perform as a robust ice or mixed rope used in a doubles configuration as well as fantastic glacier travel rope thanks to its dynamic elongation and Pro Dry treatment. Anyone looking for a highly versatile rope with fantastic handling and durability need look no further, the Edelrid Canary Pro Dry 8.6 should be at the top of the list.
Ultimately, this rope has way more great features than negative, and I am thrilled to keep testing its boundaries across the board. Sure, its small diameter might make your climbing partners nervous at first, but every partner I’ve had who doubted the rope’s diameter changed their mind once they gave it a try. The Canary Pro Dry is an incredibly light, versatile, smooth-handling cord. Given that Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold used it during their speed record on the Nose, it clearly is up to any challenge.
