BD Athlete Alex Honnold doesn’t always rope up, but when he does it’s with the Black Diamond 9.4 Dry Honnold Edition. This rope seamlessly blends high-end specs with a durable construction that can handle day in and day out use. The 1X1 sheath is burly enough to withstand everyday abuse while the versatile diameter is equally suited for hard redpoint burns on sport projects or gunning up a sub one-hour push on the Nose. Honnold’s 9.4 hits the sweet spot for climbers who demand performance and need reliability. The dry treated core and sheath repels moisture from the inside out while the triple dash middle marker is easily identifiable. The handling knots easily and feeds through a belay device smoothly, making it perfectly suited for hard redpoint burns or projecting sessions on both ice and rock. On top of that, with each rope sold, a percentage of proceeds goes to the Honnold Foundation, which supports solar energy for a more equitable world.
