    Light enough to throw in pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Good rope for short rappells and glacier travel. Always nice to have a little insurance policy in the bag if you find yourself having climbed something steeper than you want to descend. Stays dry and takes up little pack space πŸ‘πŸ»

    super lightweight and versatile

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    used it in some vlcanoe snow climbs, also for short-rping in 3rd class terrain, glacier travel... etc. great tinny rope!

    Light & easy pack rope

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great rope for ski mountaineering and short-roping purpases. super light and dry even en wet snow conditions

    Lightweight packable rope

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Excellent rope that I use for rappels on backcountry touring missions.

    Alpine Adventure Buddy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rope is my go-to rope for anything ski mountaineering related. The 30 m length packs down super small (smaller than a soccer ball) and is very lightweight making it perfect for rappelling into couloirs. Stays dry in the snow and the bright purple stands out nicely.

    Dry and lightweight peace of mind

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great rope for basic glacier climbs where you're only roping up for safety. I've used this in the North Cascades on a few basic glacier traverses including Mt Baker this summer. Very lightweight, stays quite dry even when being dragged through midday slushy snow. It's also been quite durable so far despite being dragged over some rocks and the occasional clumsy step while wearing crampons. The 30m length is great for two, a little tight for 3. The rope also has a very nice deep purple/black braid which looks great (as far as rope-aesthetics are concerned).

    PS: if you're tying prussik loops for this rope be sure to use a 5mm cord. Anything larger in diameter might be a bit big and won't bite down on the rope very well (at least when I tested it).

    Light and fast drying

      If you need a dry rope it gets the job done.

      Ski & Fast Mountaineering Go To

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Grabbed this up a couple years ago and it's my go to rope for two person mountaineering trips on non-tech glacier routes (have even used it for three in a bind) and carrying it for those backcountry ski trips that require short drop to get into. Light weight and very fast drying.

      Fine glacier and ski mountaineering rope

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Just a short twin rope for use as a single line in low fall risk terrain. When you just want a rope for safety or rescue, but don't plan on pitching anything out or rappelling long distances, this is a hunk to carry that'll dry out fast and be ready for the next adventure. A perfect one to keep in the car and throw in when you want to ski something steeper or run on a glacier with crevasses
