Any thin rope will be light and easy to handle, but this one really shines through because of the durablility. After a fall season of regular weekend crag use, theres still almost no sign of abrasion on the sheath. In fact, this shows much less wear after a season of use than my 10.2 rope did after a season. Anybody can make a thin rope, the trick is making a tough one. Kudos to mammut for doing a great job
I got this rope to replace my thick 10.5mm rope that I bought when I first started climbing. The bicolor pattern is great for setting up rappels as you can easily identify the midpoint. I ordered the yellow rope and it was a bit brighter (good thing) than I noticed in pictures I found online.
"Durable, supple throughout life, light (but not too thin)"
I climb all the time and I've been using exclusively this rope for the past ~3 years. At 9.5 mm in diameter, this rope is perfect. It's light enough for any occasion (yes, even sending and multipitch routes), but it's thick enough to be durable. It handles much better than ropes in the 8.9-low 9 mm range, and lasts many times longer. The best part of this rope is that it's supple from the day you start using it to the day you retire it. It never gets thick, lumpy, cabley or otherwise weird (as many ropes do). I love this rope, and won't switch to another unless Mammut stops making it.
