7.8 - 60m - FullDry Half Climbing Rope is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Long time climber from Good so far I bought two of these two use as in Red Rock back country routes. We climbed a seven pitch 5.10b sport route in Juniper canyon that required two rope rappels. Except for some kinking, which was slightly annoying, the ropes performed well on both ascent and descent.They felt good in the hand and their ultra-light weight was liberating.
