The next step in climbing rope technology, the Sterling Evolution Duetto Dry AT Rope boasts all the right credentials to help you up your alpine project. With a slim 8. 4mm profile but just the right amount of stiffness, the Evolution Duetto slides through 'biners like butter and all but eliminates your rope drag concerns. A low impact force rating of 6. 5 kN indicates minimal stresses during even your more dicey lead falls.
Ideal for long wandering routes, run-outs, ice climbs or sketchy trad leads; with the Evolution Duetto, two is better than one. A mid-range half rope for your go-to climbing quiver, the Duetto's 8.4 mm diameter is neither fat nor frighteningly skinny; the smooth, high-twist sheath and unique core allow the Duetto to be durable and easy to handle while reducing drag through gear and over rock. The Duetto is the half rope to turn to when you need something a little thicker than Sterling's Fusion Photon.
