This rope will not leave you disappointed. The Edelweiss Onsight Arc 9.9 clips and carries like a 9.4 but wears like a 10.5. I normally go thru about 5-6 ropes per year. This rope was tough enough that I only went thru (2) ropes this year. I love putting up new climbing routes and all of my ropes are used as work ropes. Sport, trad, whippers,hangdog,fix and jug,new routes,runouts,whatever, this rope has been put through the paces of a much thicker rope and has proven its value. My ropes are used with little to no regard towards their well-being and the sheath is still intact and the rope ready to go. The sheath is sensative to friction burns so do not hit mach 10 when rappelling or lowering and this rope will provide not only confidence but durability. This rope will not die fast. Get one and you'll see.
