DescriptionMove seamlessly from the crag to an all-day multi-pitch adventure with the versatile Black Diamond 9.6. Featuring an Endurance sheath that utilizes a 1X1 weave construction to lengthen the ropes’ lifespan by making it more abrasion-resistant, the 9.6 hits that sweet spot of being thin enough for a hard sport redpoint, but thick enough to take a seasonal beating in the desert. With a middle marker and comfortable handling that knots easily and feeds smoothly through a belay device, the BD 9.6 is our multi-faceted workhorse climbing cord.
