The Edelrid Apus 7.9mm combines outstanding strength, usability and handling with a slight diameter. Thanks to a to-the-core dry treatment process and the aforementioned features, the Apus is the go-to climbing rope for year-round alpine and high mountain adventures.
Edelrid’s Pro Dry treatment provides a near impregnable barrier to dirt and water, giving better performance in the field as well as increasing the overall life span of the rope. As with most Edelid ropes the Starling is also put through the Thermoshield process which gives massively improves the handling properties. This is achieved by a heat treatment cure to stabilise and harmonise the individual yarns. This treatment cannot be washed out and ensures a supple rope throughout its working life.
