Petzl says:

Tie into the Nomad for sport climbs, alpine routes, or anything in-between. Durable thick sheath, superior handling and a well-tuned balance between dynamic elongation and impact force make this a perfect all around rope.

All Petzl rope sheaths make up at least 33% of the total weight of the rope, translating into superior core protection. Combined with a DuraTec dry treatment, Petzl ropes can withstand the abuse of rough granite and abrasive sandstone for countless pitches. All Petzl ropes are ready to use straight out of the package thanks to the special factory butterfly coil. To help prevent lowering and rappelling accidents, Petzl ropes are marked 6 meters from each end to alert climbers that the rope end is approaching. In addition, the middle of each cord is marked to facilitate safer descents.
