Remember the winter before last? Colin Wells on Mad Hatter's Gully (V), Beinn Bhan, NW Highlands.
On steep ice routes like Mad Hatter's, top of the range wind-in icescrews, well sharpened axes and crampons and a pair of light weight excellent handling dry treated half ropes are essential. None of this comes cheap of course and if you are just getting into winter climbing the outlay required can seem daunting - but we can help!
The Superdry 8.3mm Mammut Meteor is a very similar rope Mammut's famous 8.5mm Genesis but does not have the Coating Finish of its more expensive counterpart and as such is an excellent choice for Scottish Winter and alpine climbing as well as trad cragging for anyone who wants a reliable not too skinny dry treated half rope without spending a fortune.
And now you can save even more with 50m ropes at only £74.99 (rrp
£105) and 60m ropes at £84.99 (rrp £120)!! Available in Yellow (almost green actually) and Ocean Blue.
