The Beal Ice Line 8.1mm Gold Dry Rope is a half rope for ice and alpine Climbing. The thin 8.1mm diameter means you've got less to drag up the mountain (only 39g/meter), while still maintaining the strength you need for safety. The UNICORE Technology ensures the sheath is super durable, abrasion resistant and allows you to still escape in case of a cut at the sheath along the line. The Golden Dry finish allows less than 2% water absorption, and remains flexible, regardless if you're making your way through rain, ice, or Snow. Features of the Beal Ice Line 8.1mm Gold Dry Rope The weight and free-running of Twin rope plus the advantages of a double rope Ultra low impact force The rope doesn't bunch and stays flexible for the long term

The Golden Dry technology individually treats each fiber in both the sheath and core for maximum water resistance, and the ultra-low 4. 9KN impact force rating minimizes stress on anchor points, bolstering your confidence when you're pumping-out above marginal protection.
