The lightweight Maxim Alex Honnold Series Pinnacle 9.5mm x 70m dry rope meets the needs of today's sport climbers with legendary durability and light weight for redpointing.

- REI

This version of Maxim's Pinnacle 2x Dry Climbing Rope is particularly useful in the ice/mixed category, but it will exceed expectations on any wall. An unbelievable performance capability separates the Pinnacle from most high-end, professional-grade ropes. The sheath runs smoothly through belay devices and clips into small carabiners with ease. Pair that with Endura Dry's 2x treatment on the core and sheathe, and you can enjoy this rope's durability for seasons. Durable Dry 2x decreases water absorption and increases abrasion resistance significantly, so don't be too afraid of iffy weather conditions or snowy bases.
