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.
