tpGood Basic Rope

Voted 5/5

I've been using this rope for the past three years with no complaints it's durable and has kept me alive. The biggest advantage is that it is an inexpensive dry rope.

Voted 3/5

Holy smokes this thing is heavy. Forget about using it in the alpine, unless you have a porter or something. Probably best for use at the crag close to the parking lot. That's what I use mine for. Other than the weight, it's a pretty decent rope, and the price is right!
