Built for the greatest of all time, the Black Diamond 8.6 Ondra Edition is our slimmest diameter cord specifically designed to accompany BD Athlete Adam Ondra on his hardest redpoints. Featuring the durable 2X2 woven sheath that Ondra prefers and a color he hand-picked, this 8.6 has a dry treated core and sheath for extra durability and weather resistance. The triple dash middle marker is easy to spot and adds a margin of safety, while the 80-meter length is ideal for the pumpfest enduro routes that test your limits and the length of shorter cords.
