/ 30m dry treated rope- recommendations please
so, if i'm looking to get a short rope, lightweight, 30m-ish, any recommendations? most of them seem to be non-dry treated, which would be no good for what is likely to still be a winter route.
the edelrid python seems a possible contender, assuming the 'beta shield' is a dry treatment. any other options...?
I have a python, it's a good rope but distinctly not dry-treated, it's been soaked a few times during my use.
I use a Beal scrambler which is just a 35m version of their Joker single rope - dry treated, 9.1mm so lightweight and handles well.
thanks for the tips folks- mark, the beal joker looks promising, on googling it i found it even gets the ukc gear review seal of approval...
Excellent rope to handle but it is a skinny half (8.1) but brilliantly light and packs down small.
thinking of future use, probably the former- for use on scrambles/easy winter climbs where there may be short steps that warrant pitching, but not longer passages of steeper ground that would justify a 50-60m rope
and where needing to ab off is hopefully not going to be an issue!
so a full weight single rope is likely to see more use for us, i reckon,
but thanks for the suggestions,
Needlesport will sell you half of a Beal Iceline - choice of 25m or 30m
