The Beal Cobra Unicore Golden Dry 8.6mm is a technical and strong, classic climbing rope to support the most difficult demands of traditional climbing.

Now featuring UNICORE technology, the Cobra is light, robust and free running for ease of use on long routes, big crags and on ice (treatment permitting).

Features

  • 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.

GoldenDry
Every filament of the sheath and the core of GoldenDry ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature. The durability of this treatment is given by the polymerisation, but also because of the individual treatment of each filament before the rope is made. A GoldenDry rope is a rope with the core Dry treated, and a sheath of Dry Cover.

  • Very limited weight gain in wet conditions
  • Prevents the rope thickening too much
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use

Unicore
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%

so far so good

Used once in mixed weather - dry and drizzle. Lovely rope, really smooth handling, lightweight, stayed dry, but did slide off the ledges on a multipitch.
