Sporting an easily identified middle marker, the BD 9.9 is ideal for climbers who prefer packing one burly rope for all rock projects.

Rated 1 out of 5 by scooter from Retired after 2 months of moderate use I have now had 3 Black Diamond ropes and so far I have been happy with the other ones. I have had a 9.2 80m, 9.4 70m, and this rope, 9.9 70m. All the other ropes have held up well. However, this rope was trashed after 2 months of moderate use. It is somewhat confusing for me considering that it is the thickest BD rope I have had by quite a large margin. I used this rope for moderate trad climbing and some sport climbing. It saw some falls but none were big and the rope was never running against sharp edges or anything during use. After two months of climbing on it, the rope had small core shots in two places and multiple places will significant sheath damage. Apparently BD's thinner ropes have better durability than their "workhouse" 9.9mm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobyC from Great Workhorse This is my first rope and it works wonderfully. It is supple and easy to tie knots in and goes easily through the belay device. Weather it is a short single pitch or a fairly intense multi pitch it will get the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josh from Solid Rope I bought this for program use. It's going to get a lot of top rope traffic. Already it seems to wear well and take the abuse. Not too stiff and is smooth enough in the hand. I would like to see the 9.9 with dry treatment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travis from Great Rope So Far I bought this rope for my all around crag rope. So far it has held up great. It feeds through my belay device and feels great. Looking forward to many more days with this rope!
