Where to Buy
Besides being one of the lightest half ropes on the market, Petzl’s Dragonfly is also super durable, with over a third of its fiber content in the sheath. Perfect for ice and alpine climbing, mountaineering and wandering rock routes.
All Petzl rope sheaths make up at least 33% of the total weight of the rope, translating into superior core protection. Combined with a DuraTec dry treatment, Petzl ropes can withstand the abuse of rough granite and abrasive sandstone for countless pitches. All Petzl ropes are ready to use straight out of the package thanks to the special factory butterfly coil. To help prevent lowering and rappelling accidents, Petzl ropes are marked 6 meters from each end to alert climbers that the rope end is approaching. In addition, the middle of each cord is marked to facilitate safer descents.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Dragonfly 8.2mm Rope from Petzl is one of the lightest half ropes on the market and is packaged so that it can be use without needing to be untangled. Before each Petzl rope is constructed, the core and sheath strands are individually treated, provided additional protection to each rope.
Petzl made the Dragonfly 8. 2mm Half Rope with 36% of the material in the sheath to give it the durability to handle demanding ice and alpine climbs or wandering rock routes. This Petzl rope also uses single-pick construction to create a tight sheath that holds out dirt and grime to protect the core. Using two Dragonfly 8. 2mm Climbing Ropes together in double-rope technique reduces rope drag and provides a redundant system to improve your margin of safety. Petzl added a dry treatment to both the sheath and core to keep this rope from getting wet in the harsh mountain environment. *Sold individually.
Light and efficient, especially for its size, Petzl's 8.2 mm Dragonfly Half Rope dedicates over a third of its fiber content to the sheath. Dry-treated in both the core and sheath, your rope stays easy-to-handle in cold, wet, dusty, or abrasive situations.
