Alpine climbers, listen closely, as this climbing rope is designed for you. Not only is it one of the thinnest units out of the bunch but it is also one of the strongest. Beal incorporated a Unicore technology that made the rope as sturdy as ever in spite of its seemingly small diameter.

The impact force of 7.4 allows you to safely endeavor into redpointing and discover the different routes while softly descending and ascending from one height to another. With that being said, the Opera Golden Dry is considered to be an overkill.

You will need to have a good reason to opt for it. But if you do, expect it to serve you well. We found it to be quite stretchy and waterproof – the two qualities that make it appeal to the majority of the climbing adventurers.
