Keep your climbing rope clean, pliable, and more reliable by keeping it off the ground with the Dirt Bag from Metolius. Keep your rope protected from dirt, moisture and sun with a 3- by 3-foot groundsheet that gives you ample room to coil your rope while climbing and when it's time to pack up for the day, view your gear through the durable plastic window on the tarp pocket.
