BlueWater Ropes 10.3mm SlimLine Elite

rated 4.0 of 5 stars
photo: BlueWater Ropes 10.3mm SlimLine Elite dynamic rope

I've been climbing about a year and have had this rope for about 8 months and I'm pretty happy with it. I've mostly top roped with it but I do a lot of rappelling and I've recently got into lead climbing. I haven't taking a big lead fall on it yet but it seems pretty stretchy when I rappel or even top rope. On a 80 foot route when most of the rope is out you can really feel the stretch, more so than other ropes I have used.

This rope works great for ice climbing since it dry treated. I accidentally lowered almost the entire rope into a hole in the top of the frozen waterfall that still had flowing water in it and soaked the rope pretty good but it still handled very well and didn't seem to freeze up at all.

My only complaint is that it seems to tangle and twist a little easier than other ropes but it could just be how I handle it.
