Comically Small..Outrageously GoodHave had this rope for about a year. My last rope was a 75 meter top rope 11.8 workhorse. It was huge and heavy. So when I purchased this I got a 70 meter one and cotersliced it into two 35 meter ropes then sold the other half. It is pure small wall sport climbing magic. A 8.9 118 foot rope packed down is about the volume of a basketball and about 4 pounds. ,,Also, the coating and treatment make this rope have minimul rope drag when pulling through gear and over rocks. Two things though...a grigri won't work with it, in fact the BD guide 3 and 4 are one of the only ATCs that will work with it. Lastly, never rappel on this rope! If you must, make it short, smooth and have nice rope angles on the rap station.
