The Paso Guide 7. 7mm Rope is Petzl's ultralight, ultra compact twin or half rope recently updated with a Guide UI Dry treatment for ice climbing and technical mountaineering. Guide UI Dry treats both the sheath and core to practically eliminate water absorption (less than 2%) and exceed UI standards for safety. The rope's UltraSonic finish bonds the rope's sheath and core to prevent any sheath slippage for long-lasting durability. There's a middle marker, and the rope comes in Petzl's Climb Ready Coil so you don't have to go through a complicated uncoiling system that can damage your rope right out of the bag.
Thin and very lightweight, the Petzl Paso Guide 7.7 mm rope is designed for intensive use in ice climbing or technical mountaineering. The Guide UIAA Dry water repellent treatment gives it excellent water resistance, and is well-suited to everyday use in extreme conditions.
