The Sterling Evolution Duetto 8.4mm x 60m Half DRY is a durable and easy to handle half climbing rope, ideal for long wandering routes, run-outs, ice climbs or sketchy trad leads.
Part of Sterling's Evolution Series, the sheath and core construction has been engineered for an ideal balance of low impact force, lightweight and high fall ratings, making it very durable.
The Duetto has a smooth sheath to cut down on rope drag either from the rock or your gear, giving the rope great handling and making progress and clipping easier, an ideal choice for those looking for a cragging and multipitch half rope.
The core yarns of all dynamic Sterling climbing ropes have been treated to reduce moisture absorption and yarn-on-yarn abrasion. Sterling have tested ropes with and without their DryCore treatment and have found that the DryCore ropes maintained their strength characteristics and had less elongation than non DryCore ropes when wet.
Alongside the DryCore the Duetto Dry has also had its sheath treated. This protects the rope from water absorption which eliminates weight increase, risk of freezing in cold weather, and slows the wearing of the rope considerably.
