Product Description

Striking the balance between being both light and durable, the Mammut® Matterhorn dry rope is a great choice when you need one rope to do it all.

* Useful for top roping, cragging or alpine routes, the tough, durable sheath offers ample resistance to abrasion

* 10.2mm diameter shaves overall weight and improves handling characteristic without seriously impacting the overall performance of the rope

* Smaller diameter allows easier clipping, while reducing weight and bulk for easier transport

* Durable kernmantle sheath protects the shock-absorbing core fibers; rope has superb, supple flex

* Superdryâ„¢ sheath and core are treated to discourage water absorption while resisting dirt and abrasion

* Meets or exceeds UIAA tests for falls, impact force and elongation

* 60-meter length allows longer leads and rappels; eliminates the need for double rope rappels in many cases

HotovenGreat rope!

Voted 5/5

I have used this a lot for just top roping and it works great. It does not get fuzzy fast and can really take a beating. It has a good feel to it and not an extreme amount of bounce.
