Dick's Climbing - 9.8mm PROTECT Climbing Rope
(Get this price if shipping outside EU)
Brand: Dick's Climbing
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.
