Product Description

As a mainstay in the Mammut line for ten years, the Galaxy 10mm Climbing Rope has become a favorite all-around rope of climbers everywhere. It's just the right size to decrease weight without loosing the durability that you need for everyday use. Mammut gave the Galaxy a middle mark for quick and easy rappels and ultrasonic-sealed rope ends to completely prevent sheath slippage. Strong enough to stand up to the abuse of sport climbing and light enough for long alpine routes, the Galaxy is a truly versatile rope.

Bottom Line: The gold standard of ropes.

Dow actually cared enough to wash a rope!!!! I don't know, I always assumed I would take a big enough whipper or abuse my ropes enough that the last thing I was worried about was the grit taking them out of commission. But this bad boy has served us so well this past year that I just washed it on a return trip from the sands of southern Utah. It looks like the finish is going to last longer than normal for me. The Canadian Rockies are pretty harsh on ropes. I went from a 9.8 for my main single to this 10.0 and it feels lighter. I did not actually compare the weights though. Big Mammut rope fan and highly recommend this one.

The Galaxy 10mm is a really durable rope. I have used this rope for sport and trad climbing for a year and a half, and it hasn't shown any signs of wear. The bi-pattern is really useful, on my infinity 9.5 I always seem to miss the middle mark, but with the bi-pattern rope it's pretty obvious when you pass the middle. I am definitely going to buy another one of these when mine wears out.
