i,m after buying twin half ropes for trad climbing for obvious reasons. Looking at the tendon ambition 8.5 x 60m half ropes. Has anyone had any experience or advice to give about these particular ropes

Cheers

If you want something that will last and last the mammut genesis have a very good reputation in this area. Elderid also are very hard wearing.

Got them 1 1/2 years ago and I am happy with the handling (used them for trad and a bit of winter climbing). Have a feeling that the sheath is not as hard-wearing compared to other ropes, but they are quite cheap...

In reply to David Cowley: I've got a pair of the 7.9's and have used a mates 8.5's, both of which are absolutely top notch. I personally prefer them over the genesis, and the tendon ropes a bit/quite a bit cheaper.

Buy the Tendon ones and you'll never, ever look back!

Ended up getting these ropes and very happy with what I got. Thanks everyone for your advice, now I'm gonna stop posting on here and get out and get them used :-)

Oh anyone else interested they do come with the nanotechnology cover on them rather than the basic proofing that cheaper ropes come with
