The lightweight Maxim Honnold Series Pinnacle 9.5mm x 70m climbing rope meets the needs of today's sport climbers with legendary durability and light weight for redpointing.
Maxim made the Pinnacle Bi-Pattern 2X Dry 9. 5mm Climbing Rope for the versatile climber who has mastered ice, mixed, or rock at nearby crags or faraway alpine cirques. An unbelievable performance separates the Pinnacle from most high-end, professional-grade ropes. The sheath runs smoothly through belay devices and clips into small carabiners with ease. Pair that with Endura Dry's 2x treatment on the core and sheathe, and you can enjoy this rope's solid performance for seasons. Endura Dry 2x decreases water absorption and increases abrasion resistance significantly, so don't be too afraid of iffy weather conditions. The bi-pattern has high contrast so it will stay vibrantly noticeable after the rope dirties from extended use.
The Pinnacle is a lightweight single rope designed to meet the needs of the sport and trad climber looking for a rope that will allow longer pitches without all the extra weight of a 9.9mm rope. Light enough for redpointing, but durable enough for a season's worth of projects.
The Maxim Pinnacle was designed as an all around excellent rope with an emphasis on light weight and durability. the slim size keeps the weight to a minimum while the TPT "twill" sheath makes the rope slide through belay devices and over rough rock like a dream. The rope is made using maxim's 2-x-dry treatment. The water-resistant coatings are applied to the core yarns, and then the sheath is woven over them. The whole rope is then retreated and cured to make this a very durable water-resistant treatment that will not wear off like others.Diameter: 9.6mmSheath slippage: 0mmDynamic elongation: 26%.
