Built for BD Athlete Babsi Zangerl—a climber who sends it no matter whether she’s on the Nose of El Cap or run-out above a Z4 in the Dolomites, the Black Diamond 9.2 Dry is a true all-arounder that can handle any weather. Featuring a dry treated core and sheath that protects it from the inside out against moisture and a 1X1 weave construction to lengthen the ropes’ lifespan and make it more abrasion-resistant, the 9.2 is certified for use as a half or twin rope as well. With its svelte diameter, triple dash middle marker that’s easy to see for an added margin of safety and a handling that knots easily and feeds smoothly through your belay device, the BD 9.2 is built for pushing your limits on stone.
This is the cord BD Athlete takes whether she’s climbing 5.14 on El Cap or 9a trad in the Alps. The Black Diamond 9.2 Dry is protected from the inside out with a core and sheath that’s dry treated, making it an all-weather sending machine, built to handle the abuse from one of the best all-around climbers in the game. Certified for use as a half or twin rope as well.
