Continue Shopping or View Cart

The great classic climbing rope for traditional climbing, technical and strong to support the most difficult demands. Light and free running for ease in use on long routes, big crags and on ice (treatment permitting). 


  • Excellent balance between weight and durability
  • Low impact force and high number of falls sustained 

    The rope doesn't bunch up and remains supple for the long term.
  • Allows escape by abseil even if the sheath is cut.

Every filament in the sheath of Beal DryCover ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature to prolong the life of the dry treatment, thus adding to the durability of the rope. On a Beal DryCover rope, the core is not treated.

  • Improved resistance to grit and to humidity
  • Limited water absorption
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use

The UNICORE process bonds the sheath of the rope to the core. This prevents sheath slippage, but also helps to keep the structural integrity of the rope if it is cut or damaged.

  • Sheath slippage is eliminated
  • Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut
  • Rope cutting is easy: no hot knife required
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50%
