The Edelweiss Discover 8.5mm x 30M dynamice rope offers lightweight protection for glacier & snowfield travel. Great as a backup for randonnee skiing, scrambling, or any activity where you don't usually carry a full size climbing rope, but require an extra margin of safety!

Voted 5/5

I use this rope for alpine mountaineering for two and three person rope teams. It is treated double dry, and has specifically been designed for running belays and glacier work in an alpine environment. The rope is lightweight and coils nicely around an ice pack. It is rated for 6 falls, and I'm glad mine has 6 left on it. Excellent alpine rope for a team of 2 or 3.

Do not use for rock climbing
