This is a great rope. The dry coating isn't too slick, as it can be on other ropes. I've never had a problem with it slipping through an ATC. It's fairly light, but thick enough that you won't worry about it if you are pushing your limit on a lead. Only downside is that on my rope, the 60M which is marroon, the pattern change isn't as obvious as I'd like. Sometimes when feeding the rope through rap anchors I'll realize that I've gone past the center mark, and have to work back slowly until I see the change. I also heard from a few people before I bought this rope that it was stiff and could be hard to tie knots in. I haven't found this to be the case at all.
