Review: Mammut Alpine Sender Climbing Rope

I was skeptical about safety on a 9mm rope, as I’m used to thick, stiff ropes for outdoor use. However, I immediately felt confident with the Mammut Alpine Sender Dry Rope while both belaying and climbing. The dry-treated rope feels svelte and is ready to climb out of the gate without any pig-tailing. Compact and firm, the rope has updated Sender construction, which ensures smooth handling and abrasion resistance with the lightness you want when tackling alpine ascents.

Available at area stores; $260.
