My Favorite Sport Climbing Rope
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Super lightweight and feeds through the grigri like butter. Unlike other ropes, this one doesn't thicken up over time -- it stays true to shape after multiple cragging days without excessive "furriness". I've tried the Sterling 9.2mm Aero and the Mammut 9.2mm Revelation and this one is my favorite crag rope by a long shot. It's been really durable as well.
The only downside is lack of a good bi-weave color, which is why I use the single pattern for sport climbing. I use the Sterling 9.0mm Nano for multipitch climbs (lighter weight, better bi-weave pattern, but less durability).
