The Black Diamond brand made a smart move when it came out with a line of climbing ropes, thus expanding its sports equipment range. Its reputable position on the market allowed the company to supply its loyal customers with highly durable and smooth ropes that won’t break the bank.

The built-in burly sheath is to thank for that as the dry-treated sheath and core protect the rope from getting moist while the 2×2 weave structure prolongs the rope’s lifespan. The 9.4mm climbing rope functions well with ice and rock scenarios alike.

You don’t have to choose two different ropes for two different surfaces. To add to the mix, it has got easily notable center markers to make the entire climbing experience less stressful and more convenient for you.
