Description

Ideal for long alpine routes and tricky weather windows, the Black Diamond 7.9 is built for the mountains. Featuring a burly sheath that uses a 2X2 weave construction to lengthen the rope’s lifespan, the 7.9 also boasts a dry treated core and sheath, which protects it from the inside out against moisture. With easily identifiable middle markers, the BD 7.9’s are specifically designed to be used in pairs as half ropes or twins for an alpine or multi-pitch set-up, making them perfect for anything the mountains have to offer. 

  • Dry Performance—With a core and sheath that are dry treated, our dry treated ropes are protected against weather from the inside out
  • 2X2 Woven Sheath—Utilizing a 2X2 weave construction, our standard sheath is built to withstand everyday use
  • Durability and Handling Balance—Purpose-built to balance both durability and great handling, our ropes are not too stiff and not too soft, giving you a great feeling rope that knots easily, feeds through your belay device with ease, yet holds up to a barrage of use
  • Half/twin ropes must be used in pairs.  Do not use as a single rope

7.9 Dry Climbing Rope is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good ropes, poor half rope marks Really light ropes! 4 stars only because I used the ropes 3 times (1 on snow and 2 on rock) and the half-rope yellow mark on the purple one is completely gone, the black mark on the orange rope is barely visible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality rope I bought the pair last year and have used them several times on ice. They are soft, easy to use in the belay device, and stay dry.
