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
