Finally retiring my Laser ARC
Review by: dr_monkey, 2009-05-25
I bought this rope cheap, on a whim, years ago just when Edelweiss began to be available in the US. It has been my go-to rope for multi-pitch trad and alpine climbing for so long it's hard to let it go. I've worn out two other ropes while I've had it, and the sheath is still in decent shape. Long lasting, great handling, light, and tough. Only complaint is that it just doesn't seem to pack down very small in a pack compared to other ropes of this size.

I bought a dry one of these for trad climbing. The rope is a bit fatter than and doesn't stretch as much as I expected -- maybe I just got spoiled by my PMI. All in all, though, this is a very good rope. The sheath seems pretty darn tough AND SLICK. Watch belaying, rappeling, and lowering.

I have the bi-pattern and like it alot. Purchesed for long trad climbs and as a light second rope. The bright color is like dayglow. It can feel a little stiff at times but that shows its quality and is less likely to kink up. I found it great for lead belays and had no problems arresting myself on rappel or a falling climber with it.

This is my second Edelweiss rope (I bought the Anniversary 10.5 a little over a year ago) and I have nothing bad to say about it so far. As with the Anniversary rope, the Laser seems like a very good value. I actually spent a little more and got the bi-pattern version (the Laser ARC) and am using it primarily for multi-pitch trad routes. It handles quite nicely, and I haven't had any problems with it slipping while belaying or rappelling (with a Reverso).

my first rope, i opted for the lightweight and slightly thinner rope. tends to slip through belay device easily - great for belaying the leader, but requires a lot of pressure when stopping a fall. not bad for $119.
