Fashioned for both sport and alpine climbing, the Edelweiss Onsight Arc is lightweight and easy handling.
As the name implies, the Edelweiss Onsight Arc 9.9mm EverDry Rope is designed for pushing your onsight limits on both alpine and sport terrain. Sometimes onsighting demands skipping bolts or running out the gear placements not that we recommend doing either of these. The Onsight Arc has all the features you need in this scenario. It is lightweight and lithe for low drag, easy handling, and fast clips. The Arc differential weave pattern allows you and your belayer to easily identify the middle of the rope information that is vital to safety when linking pitches and lowering. The Perdur and EverDry coatings increase durability by up to 33% and significantly improve water resistance respectively. Both qualities are vital to your safety and confidence when you need to really go for it on the sharp end. Comes in 60m and 70m lengths.
The On Sight is a great all-around rope with a great price. At 9.9 mm, the On Sight is great for those hard sport projects, light enough to pack in long distances, and beefy enough to take a beating. The On Sight ARC is a bi-pattern rope that changes weaves at the halfway point so you always know when you've reached it. All On Sights are dry treated using the Edelweiss Everdry system. Colors may vary.
