The Fixe Fanatic 8.4mm x 60m have specifications that are made for trad climbing in the UK and are perfect for enthusiastic trad climbers.

8.4mm ropes lie in the middle of the scales when it comes to the balance between lightness and lifespan. Not too heavy for long mountainous approaches and yet still retains a great deal of durability for climbers getting out whenever the weather allows.

60m half ropes are very common for a reason. They make for a great length trad rope. This gives you plenty of options when climbing, setting up belays, running pitches together etc, especially on longer multi-pitches such as those found on the higher crags in the mountains.

There are other ropes from other brands in the same diameter and length range as the Fanatic, so for other points of difference, we can take a look at the history and construction of this rope.

In 2012 Roca formed a part of Fixe and are key to the popularity of the current range of Fixe ropes, with a great history and an excellent reputation of making high quality ropes in Spain. In the case of the Fanatic, the rope is made from their 'Classic Plus 48' braid, which uses 48 strands, more than the common industry strand count of 42 which makes a durable weave and makes the rope a joy to handle. This high quality construction also means that the Fanatic doesn't need additional chemical treatments to increase its durability. So whilst the rope doesn't have a dry treatment, you aren't sacrificing durability and abrasion resistance for it.

The Fixe Fanatic 8.4mm x 60m falls into one of our most popular categories of ropes, with its middle of the road diameter and perfect length for multi-pitch. This is all backed up with the heritage and great construction so we are very happy to recommend these half ropes.

The Fixe Fanatic comes in different lengths and treatments, along side other models which can be seen in our Fixe Climbing Rope Collection.

      Fixe 8.6mm half rope 60m

      this rope handled well - smoothly and surprisingly kink-free for a straight out of the bag use. A full coil of rope feels good in the hand. Have not fallen on it but have used it to tie direct and semi direct belays, lead climb and second. I am very pleased with my purchase.
