Petzl's new range of climbing ropes have been developed to meet the needs of today's climbers. Whether you are looking for a single rope, a half/twin rope or a rope with multiple certification (single and half/twin), you will find one that meets your needs. Each rope diameter corresponds to specific activities: activities: indoor wall, snow/ice and rock climbing and also incorporate the latest technologies while being developed to meet Petzl's quality requirements.

The Petzl rope line was developed with Petzl's requirements for quality and performance, meeting the needs of users engaged in any vertical activity. With this in mind, each rope is crafted according to precise specifications suited to its use. Further, all Petzl ropes benefit from an approach that focuses on:

  • durability in terms of number of falls held, and overall abrasion resistance
  • optimizing the elongation necessary to achieve the desired shock absorption
  • excellent grip for greater fluidity in handling and use in belay devices
  • optimal weight
