This 9.8mm single rope is great for sport or alpine climbing. This rope's long 60-meter length extends your leads, while its pattern sheath makes it easy to find the rope's midpoint for the rappel back down Fluoropolymer dry treatment penetrates to the core and bonds with the rope fiber to retard moisture gain without affecting rope performance Kernmantle construction with premium-quality U.S.-manufactured materials effectively absorbs falls; friction-reducing finish extends the rope life Advanced braiding techniques stabilize the yarns for a consistent feel over the rope's useful life and create superb handling characteristics Meets or exceeds UIAA tests for falls, impact force and elongation

Love this rope, the bi-pattern is key and is now a personal standard when choosing a rope. The 9.8mm makes it a nice rope for those redpoints and a nice alternative to your workhorse rope. I have dropped quite a few feet of this rope in the water on accident for a few seconds and it wicked the water greatly. Highly recommended for those who search for a lighter, smaller diameter rope still capable of handling numerous falls.

This rope has impressed me. Been using it for over a year now. It's faced sport and trad leads, Utah sand, the rough granite of Vedauwoo, WY and the Black Hills in SD. I haven't noticed any flat spots or frays. When it gets real dirty I just wash it in the tub. The Bi-Pattern is what really sells it. I'm hooked on Bi-Pattern now and that's the first thing I look for in a rope. It's alot more convienent than trying to catch some obscure black line that blends in with the rest of the rope. Some ropes don't even have a middle mark which I can't understand as it's a huge safety feature. Had some Beal ropes before this and Maxim definitely last longer.

I don't have the bi-pattern, but I have been happy with this rope. Mine has seen many falls and just keeps going. Has a good feel but might be a bit heavy by today's standards... expected at 10.5, 60M. I'd buy another one.

This was my second rope too. It was fantastic right out of the bag. No coiling and real supple. I noticed it gets real dirty real quick,, but it's still great. I believe they call this the Leavittator after Randy Leavitt.

This is my second rope. I love how smoothly it moves through the belay. Also it hasn't twisted up yet *fingers crossed*. The bi-pattern makes rapping off sport climbs much safer.
