This is the nicest climbing rope I have ever used.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $140

This is the nicest climbing rope I have ever used. It is very thin and lightwieght, but it still holds 5 UIAA falls. It is a dry rope, which makes this rope, coupled with its light weight, ideal for alpine routes where you will encounter glaciers, rock, and ice. I have used it a couple of times already, on some short sport and trad routes( 1/2 to a full pitch) and you don't even feel it pulling throught the gear. It slides through biners like a hot knife thru butter. Really, for all the alpine climbers out there, this is the rope to get.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Apogee is an ultra-lightweight, super-skinny single rope that won't let you down on your next try for a redpoint. Primarily for the experienced climber looking for protection without being constrained by a heavier, thicker rope. Kernmantle construction to provide a soft catch. Endura Dry 2X Dry treatment for water repellency; treatment also dry-lubricates the inner core fibers. 9.1 mm diameter reduces friction through belay devices and protection. Weighs only 55 grams per meter; the lightest single rope available from Maxim.
