Recent Dynamic Rope Reviews

Beal Flyer II 10.2 mm

rated 5 of 5 stars Robust rope with good handling. After 10+ years of usage, this rope can still take it. I've used it only for sport climbing, occasional use. I have a 70 m bi-pattern, standard treatment Flyer 2 rope. It was used for everything, from lead climbing to top-rope, on a variety of route types. It was many times abused against abrasive edges, occasionally got wet, and has taken a lot of dust during its lifetime. The handling of this rope was always nice, it managed to keeps its softness during entire life. Full review

Mammut Infinity 9.5 mm

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing all-around rope. I have the dry version and love it, I have used it on sport climbing, multipitches, and easy mountains in the Cordillera Blanca (Perú) and after 11 months of considerable use it doesn't look like it has.  It's very smooth for belaying and the dry technology is very useful when you go to glaciars (is not the best use of it, but I only own this rope) so it doesn't get heavy for the water. It has a middle marker so you can easily find the middle when you want to rappel with… Full review

Edelweiss Axis 10.3

rated 4 of 5 stars This was my first rope and, I think, a very good one for that purpose, but not much else. It's proven super durable over several seasons but has a high weight per meter that makes it as heavy as my 70m Sterling Velocity 9.8mm. Superb value including double dry treatment and a pretty decent rope bag. I bought my Edelweiss Axis 10.3mm rope in 2010 as my first climbing rope. I've used it for hundreds of sport and trad climbs including multipitch routes and despite its glaring drawbacks of weight and… Full review

Edelweiss Discover 8 mm

rated 5 of 5 stars My new favorite rope for glacier travel. ME: So, you carry the tent and stove and I'll carry the rope?" Partner who hasn't seen the rope yet: "That sounds fair." ME: *Smiles.  My rope is under 3 pounds I bought this rope for one reason; low-angle glacier travel on Mt. Rainier, Baker, etc. At 8mm this 30m rope won't work with many belay devices so TRY IT OUT WITH YOUR PRUSIKS AND BELAY DEVICES BEFORE YOU GO CLIMB! Caveat:  I am using this rope as a single rope even though it is ONLY rated as a… Full review

Beal Edlinger 10.2 mm

rated 1 of 5 stars Poor "sheet slippage." I've been through maybe a dozen ropes in my past. This is the worst rope I've ever had. On my second day out with this rope, we took two small falls (fall factor < 0.1). I got more than an inch of "sheet slippage". I've seen "sheet slippage" before, but not before at least one year of weekly usage. I'll never get a Beal rope again. If "sheet slippage" is highly variable, at least stay away from the "batch number" M02R157111 (listed on the tag attached to the rope). Full review

Beal Joker 9.1 mm

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light is right. A very versatile rope. Recently I lost 30 or so pounds, so you may ask, “Why do you care what your rope weighs? Now you can carry more stuff easier.” The answer is, “Because I can.” Would Mallory have worn hobnailed boots and wool if he had been able to wear fleece and nylon? Of course not, light is right. My main workhorse climbing rope is a 10.2mm monster that is fantastic till I need to carry it. I saw that Beal was making a thin rope that works in single, half or twin… Full review

Mammut Infinity 9.5 mm

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An excellent rope for both sport climbing and trad. I bought a 70 m, bi-color (color change at midpoint) for use in El Potrero Chico. The length and color scheme facilitated two combining 100' pitches and efficient rappels off long sport routes. The 9.5 mm diameter is a reasonable compromise of weight and beefiness. The rope handles smoothly without feeling slick. I also used it this fall leading trad in the Gunks. No complaints, and the 70 m length allowed us to sometimes combine what was normally… Full review

BlueWater Ropes 9.7mm Lightning Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Feeds great. This rope is a great size for a thinner workhorse option. I use this rope as my go-to option if I can only take one rope with me to the crag. The Lightning Pro feeds great on belay, clips smoothly, and the color definitely pops in pics too, which is a bonus. I have taken some whippers on this rope, and it is elastic enough to give me a soft catch, but durable enough to withstand all the route projecting I use it on.   I climb primarily sport routes in dry climates, and I haven't tested… Full review

Mammut Genesis 8.5

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic, lightweight and sturdy double ropes. Unlike others I have seen, these don't tangle or get "ringlets" and after 6 years they're not fuzzy. Very smooth through the belay device, these ropes are great for rappelling and easy retrieval as well as good handling while belaying. Fantastic, lightweight and sturdy double ropes. Unlike others I have seen, these don't tangle or get "ringlets". Very smooth through the belay device, these ropes are great for rappelling and easy retrieval as well as… Full review
