9.2 - 70m Climbing Rope is rated out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cdec from My new goto ropes! I got my hands on a 9.2, 70m last October just before a trip to Sicily. We climbed on it daily for 2 weeks on some of the sharpest stone I've have seen in 20 years of climbing. The rope came away untouched. I've used it extensively for both my personal climbing and guiding since. It's now June and it is holding up better than I could have hoped for. No real wear visible. These ropes have a soft hand which worried me. How would such a subtle rope hold up? After months of climbing I can say that they hold up to use and abuse! Please make 2 colors in the same size and length. Really a necessity for guiding or climbing with 2 followers climbing parallel! I've also got the Gym rope and a 9.2 dry. All are great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jamie from Unsure after first impression I used this rope in the desert for the first time this weekend. It's light, it handles well on lead, and it looks sweet. However, I found it tough to hold on and inconsistent-feeling while lowering with a grigri. I'm hoping this gets better with wear and tear and was just a symptom of it being a slippery new skinny rope. For reference, this is not the first 9.2 I've used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by james c from Awesome rope I'm very satisfied with this rope for its 'hand.' It's easily managed, works well with the ATC, ATCguide and the Grigri. The durability against the highly fractured granite I've climbed on recently has been excellent. I like this rope enough to recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lance from Love this rope! Been leading (and falling), and top roping over the past several weeks. Sweet rope, feels smooth through the belays and is not showing any wear. Holds knots well and no sign of sheath slippage.
