This super-skinny model by Blue Water is a specific kind of a climber oriented type of a climbing rope that is good to know about in case you are that climber. What climbers are talking about? You guessed it, the professional climbers whose principal goal is to experiment with redpointing strenuous routes.

Although you do need to have a reliable belayer for the rope to not slide too easily, the dynamic elongation of the rope will not let you undergo harsh catches. The Icon Double Dry, as the title suggests, offers the double dry treatment for core and sheath, which gives you the possibility to use the rope in wet conditions too.

You will likely find this model to make it to the top of your list as a result of its proven durability and compatibility with unexpected weather scenarios. And we encourage you to do so.
