Tech specs



Heron Pro Dry 9.8mm

Pro Dry

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.

Bluesign Approved

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.

Heron Pro Dry 9.8mm


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.

Great on Ice

Great rope in 80m for Ice climbing. A bit stretchy for top rope but great handling

Fast delivery, great price, great rope

I live in the U.S. and this rope was delivered so fast without expense. Now the rope itself, for the price you can't complain. Feels great in the hand, the dry coating gives a little extra grip. It's fairly light in weight and if you're a hobby climber I'd say that this rope is for you! Cheap and cheerful from a great brand.

Quality rope but nothing special

I bought this rope for my friend and we tested in the gym and in the crag also.
You can easily tie/untie the knots, the handling is impressive and it's also featherlight but the colour is so dull.
If you're an Edelrid fan you'll be satisfied but you can get far better ropes for that price from manufacter Roca.
Anyway, I do not recommend to use if you're inexperienced, it's slipperly like all other full dry ropes.
