Rating: rated 3.5 of 5 stars

Summary

Lightweight rope for non-technical terrain.

Pros

  • light
  • dry treatment

It's useful for glacier travel or peace of mind when necessary. Has a dry treatment which gives it some water resistance and it's pretty light and compact. Can be found in 20, 30, and 48 m length.

It's the kind of rope you use for non-technical terrain or when you are not sure what to expect.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Weighing in at only 37 grams per meter, the Beal Rando 8mm Standard Cover Rope takes the weight off your back and still handles the impact when you fall. Beal recommends you only use this rope for ski-tours, crossing over glaciers, and easy snow routes that don't have bergschrunds or other treacherous passages. But, with two Rando ropes, you can take the lead on any route whether it's climbing or mountaineering. With that said, be sure to check out the UI and impact force ratings in our tech specs because we included both half and twin ropes for your convenience. Rando's Classic technology means neither the sheath nor core were subjected to chemical solvents such as Beal's Golden Dry and Dry Cover treatments. However, that doesn't mean that you have a sub-par rope to protect you and your partner. On the contrary, the Standard Rando provides excellent shock absorption due to a very low impact force, giving this rope a balance between quality and price. With markings every 12 meters, Beal continues to help you space multiple tie-ins the same way it helps you have a pleasant climb every route, every time.
