8.2mm half rope with Duratec Dry treatment
Besides being one of the lightest half ropes on the market, Petzlís DRAGONFLY
is also durable, with over a third of its fiber content in the sheath. Perfect
for ice and alpine climbing, mountaineering and wandering rock routes.
- Duratec Dry treatment helps prevent the rope from absorbing water Ė
which can weaken a rope and make it difficult to handle in freezing
conditions. Before a Petzl rope is constructed, the core and sheath strands
are individually treated, providing water repellencty in case you find
yourself in a deluge, snowfield or on a dripping ice chandelier.
- All Petzl ropes are butterfly coiled in the factory and are ready to
use straight out of the package. This coiling method means no more tangled
mess when you first use your new rope. Gone is the tedious operation of
carefully uncoiling, flaking and reflaking your new rope, only to end up
with annoying kinks. With a Petzl rope, just tie-in and start climbing.
- To help facilitate descents, the middle of each Petzl cord is marked
with a black bar. Even with this marking, itís sometimes a good idea to tie
a knot at the end of the rope as an additional safety measure.
