The Ice Line is the lightest double-dry rope around—which means wet, heavy ropes will no longer be an issue this winter. Double-dry coated (both core AND sheath are dry coated) for water resistance, the Ice Line’s low impact force is great news for less-than-perfect belay points, sketchy gear placements on mixed routes and dodgy screw placements. The Ice Line can also be used wandering rock climbs and traversing trad pitches.

Review 4 out of 5 stars

I like these ropes. Clipping at the end of a pumpy pitch is super easy with these light skinny cords. Only reason they got a 4 is that for me they are too skinny for all-round use... I'd only use them for alpine and ice, whereas I would use an 8.5mm rope for everything from alpine sport, to alpine, ice and trad.

They're so skinny I worry about them on sharp edges, and slightly thicker ropes make me feel better.

Strong enough for single use on a glacier and great on vertical ice.
Stays dry for a long time, making it easy to coil.
