Petzl Paso - 7,7mm
The Petzl Paso 7.7mm is a great rope for technical routes that handles really well and can be used for a multitude of different climbs. The 7.7mm diameter means that it's super lightweight, while the Duratec Dry treatment makes it water, dirt and abrasion resistant, so it lends itself well to bad-weather mountaineering and ice climbing. A combination of the Duratec and EverFlex treatment increase the durability and longevity of the rope, as well as making it easy to handle when belaying and in bad weather. Finally the ClimbReady coil means it can be used as soon as you take it out of the packet, with no annoying uncoiling tangles or kinks.

Duratec Dry treatment
Dry treatment makes the rope more resistant to water, dirt and abrasion; handling, grip and other characteristics are retained longer in cold, wet conditions.
The core and the sheath are bonded together at the rope ends by an ultrasonic process called UltraSonic Finish; gives greater durability and avoids frayed ends.
Specific coil makes the rope ready for use; helps the user avoid initial uncoiling mistakes and increases longevity
Special thermal treatment stabilizes the core strands and improves consistency; offers excellent grip and consistent handling over time
