1 Rope 1 Tree

Beal takes their environmental responsibility seriously. They divide their efforts between two main approaches. Firstly, Beal run an exceptional programme, in which they plant a tree for every single dynamic rope purchased. They’ve been doing this since 2007 and have no plans to stop! Secondly, Beal organises the recycling of ropes when they reach the end of their life. Every Beal rope is recyclable, and anyone can send their used Beal rope to one of their recycling departments, where they are broken down and reused. Top work Beal!

I really like this new rope. The only thing with it just like at any other new ropes that it slips a little bit in the belay but everything else is great! :)

Great classic rope

Great rope value for money, nothing really bad. If you want something to start this is the best rope in my opinion, then you can review if you want something lighter or thinner!

great rope!

it is exactly what it says.
Great feeling when belaying, light and flexible when leading.
robust and light, making it easy to carry!

Decent gym rope

I bought 80 meters and split it in two with a friend to get a cheap beater gym rope for lead climbing. It looks surprisingly thin for a 9.8 rope and feeds through a gri-gri well. Unfortunately it's rather stiff when belaying and gets kinks often. I'm happy with it considering the price and what I use it for.

Great Value

I've been using it for 2 months with no signs of wear.
Great value for the price would buy again.
