Apex is the workhorse of the New England Ropes line. Apex is designed for big wall and trad climbing or for working projects and developing routes. Apex makes an excellent rope for challenge courses and fall protection for safety personnel. Apex takes a beating but still delivers reliable clips. All Apex ropes feature Endura Dry Treatment.

The New England Apex 9.9mm x 60m Dry rope offers excellent durability and handling, letting you confidently push your limits on your next climb. A terrific choice for long sport, trad and alpine climbs-60m length allows long leads and rappels. Endura Dry(TM) treatment penetrates to the core and bonds with the rope fiber to retard moisture gain and improve abrasion resistance. Kernmantle construction from U.S.-manufactured, premium materials effectively absorbs falls; friction-reducing finish extends the rope's life. Advanced braiding techniques stabilize the yarns for a consistent feel over the rope's useful life and create superb handling characteristics. Meets or exceeds UIAA tests for falls, impact force and elongation. Overstock.
