Whether you’re using it as a single, double or half rope, the 8.9mm diameter combined with Edelrid’s Thermo Shield treatment makes it light and easy to handle – the perfect climbing rope for those who don’t want to stop at just one type of climbing.

Thermoshield is a heat treatment that gives Edelrid ropes their great handling and smoothness. Heat treating a rope helps to shrink and harmonise all the fibres in the rope, which helps it to stay compact and easy-to-handle for the duration of its life, unlike non-heat-treated ropes, which can often suddenly become stiff and wear out more quickly.
Bluesign is an international standard for fabric production, which ensures that stringent environmental, safety and efficiency standards are are met by any fabric bearing its logo. Bluesign fabrics use fewer chemicals, less water, safer processes and highly efficient manufacturing techniques to ensure that the creation of your new jacket, rope or backpack doesn’t destroy the world you hope to use it to enjoy.
Pro Dry is Edelrid’s full-rope dry treatment, meaning that both the sheath and the core of the rope have been chemically treated to resist water, dirt and grime. While it’s not fully waterproof, Pro Dry ropes will only absorb a maximum of 2% of the rope’s weight in wet conditions, compared to the 50% of an untreated rope. SO not only does Pro Dry treatment protect your rope from the elements, it’s thermo-sealed, which makes for even better handling, durability and longevity.
