Thin, But not scary thin, the Ion2 9.4 is a high performance, lightweight rope. The new and improved construction includes a thicker sheath, lighter weight, and lower impact force. This rope is great for cragging, working projects, and is light enough to send hard redpoints.

“The ION2... Is great!!! It could be the best rope Sterling has made so far. I have been climbing non-stop with it since you gave me and I let everyone use and it is still in great shape. It might be slightly less dynamic than the Nano, but it works great... Cheers.”
