Come prepared for whatever the wall throws at you with the Sterling Rope Evolution Duetto 8.4mm Climbing Rope!
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.

The Sterling Evolution Duetto is a confidence inspiring dynamic climbing rope (even with a skinny diameter of 8.4 mm), thanks to a nice firm hand. A smooth, abrasion-resistant sheath glides over snow and ice and through gear effortlessly.-- DryCoat(TM) sheath protects the rope from water absorption, eliminates weight increase, increases performance in cold, wet weather and slows the wear of rope considerably-- Sterling DryCore(TM) treatment reduces yarn-on-yarn abrasion and moisture absorption of core yarns-- Firm hand makes clipping easy-- Outstanding performance-- While you can go shorter for glacier travel and backcountry skiing, this 60 meter is up for alpine rock adventures, rappels and double rope use-- Proudly made in the USA
