Glides around arêtes.
Climb around corners on alpine routes or nearby crags with Maxim's 9.9mm Glider Bi-Pattern Standard-Dry Core Climbing Rope living up to its gliding name. Twill Pattern Technology gives the Glider impressive drag reduction, and its supple feel slides through belay devices without kinking. Maxim added a Standard-Dry treatment to the sheathe and the core for decreased water absorption and excellent abrasion-resistance. A bi-pattern design helps you find the rope's center easier for a faster rappel.

Love this rope - super supple but extra durable - the work horse of my ropes - 9.9mm is the new 10mm -
Glides sooooo nicely through draws and belay devices, and easily handles, and doesn't seem to twist and tangle like other ropes.
Decently light for it's size -
The bi-pattern is very distinct and quite flashy - love the color and pattern.
Worth it's weight in gold! Like all maxim ropes it seems.
