We have had our own climbing rope made! Now available again in the very popular orange colour.

This is without question the best value Mammut PROTECT rope on the market.

PROTECT is Mammut's new sheath treatment to reduce dirt ingress and increase abrasion resistance, it also helps with handleability. Middle marked and lovely to handle, these really are great. 

Don't worry Pete and I didn't make them ourselves in my garden shed. These are made in Switzerland by Mammut, a company with over 150 years of rope making experience.

We have designed this as a "do anything" rope. All lengths are middle-marked.

  • The 30m lengths are perfect for indoor use (admittedly you don't need the dry treatment but, hey, look at the price!)
  • The 50m lengths will be good for people who still want a shortish rope for general outdoor use, perhaps you only climb at short crags or just don't want to lug too much weight around.
  • The 60m lengths are your general purpose UK sport climbing length. With a diameter of 9.8mm they will last well but won't be too bulky and will slide though your belay device nicely. Seeing as these are dry treated they will also be good for winter or alpine use when half ropes are not necessary.
  • The 70 & 80m lengths are your European sport climbing ropes. A lot of French and Spanish crags require at least a 70m rope these days. The 9.8mm diameter is a good "middle weight" for this type of use. They will stand up to some hard doggin, but shouldn't be too heavy for the final redpoint. And afterall, who wants to drag 80m of 10.5mm rope around or spend £200 on a skinny rope they are going to wear out on the first holiday.
Diameter 9.8mm
Weight 66g/m
Sheath Proportion 38%
Number of Falls 7-8
Impact Force 9.1kN
Dynamic Elongation 30%
Static Elongation 6.8%
Sheath Slippage 0mm

Great selection. Well priced. Had a query, which was answered same day. Overall an excellent service. Will be using again! Thank you.

Martyn H.

Only used twice in anger so far but a very nice little rope. Slightly stiff the first time you knot it but two or three tie-ins later the ends soften up and knot very nicely. 30m version coils nice and tight leaving room in the rucksack. It feels thin which makes it easy to handle but still grabs well in an ATC. Chose this primarily for the very high fall rating but it really seems to live up to the website recommendations very well. Service is also absolutely brilliant - have had a few bits and bobs from Dick's now and always super quick and super friendly.

Sean S.

Great telephone assistance and advice to my son who is very pleased with my purchase for him! Rope excellent in all respects. To be recommended,


This rope is one year old now and I've been using it for every think form wall climbing,sport ,trad ,and some short winter climbs ....It's a lovely dry rope ,and Great for the money :moneybag:


Excellent value for a dry rope, quick service despite holiday season. Still to try the rope in anger, but feels good, and the rope centre is pre marked.

Lemuel B.

Great price. Great size for belaying Great weather coating Fantastic service Delightful customer experience (used the phone to chat about selection) Missed the helmet promo though. These boys aren't afraid to pass on great deals and promotions to the customer. A rare quality these days.

Edward H.

It's gold, it's really short so perfect for indoors or cheeky little grit routes. Knots nice and feels good in the hand. Lovely.

Lemuel B.

Fantastic rope for the money. The boys were great on the phone very helpful. Also treated the us right with next day postage to NI. For free. Will recommend and shop again.

Nathan S.

Nathanael G.

Great product. Great price. Fast delivery. Will be shopping at Dicks Climbing again!!!

Chris W.

Excellent service with fast delivery and details even regarding the time it would be delivered! Rope is fantastic and at a price hard to beat.

Julian C.

Awesome rope, amazing value for money and outstanding service Dicks. What more good I say! Highly recommended.

Edward H.

Bought this rope to fill the non-existent void in my rope collection. I have a perfectly good 50m rope for indoor, sport and nearly everything I could need it to do. Despite that I spent the last £50 I had on this spiffy new rope from Dicks. It's a lovely shade of orange, feels nice and supple and allows me to pack a complete rack inc rope, helmet and shoes into a 30l Rucksack. Haven't used it in the rain so can't tell if the dry treatment works or not. Shipped fast and generally chuffed all round.

Andrew B.

Just back from using during a climbing trip to North Wales. A nice good quality rope. Looking forward to using again. Delivery was fast and from what I have seen was a lot cheaper than other stores.

Rob W.

User friendly, informative, quick.

Leo S.

I bought the 80m - I haven't used it yet as it is currently tucked away waiting to be taken to France. The Dick's service was typically swift and efficient though, thanks again!

David C.

Having recently bought 70m of dicks super dry rope i am once again astounded by the level of service. First of all, fantastic rope, handles brilliantly straight out of the bag. AND WHAT A PRICE! after much shopping i could not have got a better rope else where for cheaper, even through sneaky trade routes. More than impressive and Dick keep the good stuff like this coming Ive always said the level of service at Dicks is unparalleled and once again they have proved true. Great easy to use website, pick up the next day couldn't have been easier (although postage was free too!) And the staff were there with expert advice but also truly nice guys, taking an interest in my planned trip abroad even though my climbing barely graduates the level of punter ! Top job all around. Ive even ordered from dicks when living on the other side of the country. Cant ask for more.

Alex D.

This is the bargain of the year, quality.

Ben S.

I've had the rope out 5 or 6 times now and it really handles nicely. Very good service with competitive prices and exceptional delivery. Highly recommend and will be coming back. Thanks

Vincent M.

We're currently using the 80 m in Turkey, its been taking a hammering over the last 2 weeks, its standing up well to the test and looks in pretty good condition still. We're taking it to Kalymnos for another 2 weeks and we're sure it will handle well. Its not the lightest or thinnest however as a work horse its great and very hard-wearing. We've not had to break out the Sunday Best rope yet. Thanks very much.

Rob A.

Got my Dicks SuperDry rope and it rocks! Can't wait to get some time off and get to use it.


I bought several of these for my uni club recently, they're really nice ropes for a good price.

Ann-kristin V.

Really good rope for a really good price delivered in really good time :)


Arrived about 6 minutes after I bought it, with a hand written thank you note!

Damian B.

Easily the best service I've received in a long time. Not had chance to try the rope yet, but it's a Mammut rope with a superdry treatment and it's a great colour.

Richard B.

Excellent service. May not mean much to some people, but a hand written personal note with the rope speaks volumes to me.

Matthew D.

As it says above, quick service and very competitively priced, will be back. Matt

Andrew M.

real nice rope, handles real well. Dick's also sent my order next day, so speedy turn around too. thanks


I have just used this rope for the first time and I have to say that these guys have done a great job. The rope was soft to fall on and ran very smoothly for brand new and since it is Mammut you know it will last. A brief comment on the service, delivery was swift and efficient and I particularly appreciated the hand written compliments card included in the package. That sort of personal touch is likely to make me shop with Dick's climbing again in the future. Thanks very much guys.

Derek E.

Can't wait to try it outdoors, but felt good at the local indoor wall - easy to pay out, soft to fall on, absolute bargain. Cheers guys!!
