Moosejaw Staff Pick - Andy, Partridge Creek Moosejaw
The Nomad 9.8 Rope by Petzl is a durable rope with a thick sheath, providing superior handling and a well-tuned balance between dynamic elongation and impact force making this a perfect all-around rope. This climbing rope was designed where the sheaths make up at least 33% of the total weight of the rope, translating into superior core protection while you continuously abuse it on multiple pitches of gritty sandstone or granite. The Duratec treatment involves treating the core and outer layer, providing a long-lasting protection from wetness and freezing. The smooth handling Nomad climbing rope is packaged in a "climb ready" coil to eliminate the arduous task of uncoiling the rope the first time. Gosh, what a great concept, its like those toys that say "assembly required" except this is like the total opposite.
