Duetto 8.4 mm
8.4 mm Dynamic Rope Certified to Half and Twin
Ideal for long, wandering routes, run-outs, ice climbs or sketchy trad leads. A mid-range half rope, the Duetto’s 8.4 mm diameter is neither fat nor frighteningly skinny; the smooth, high-twist sheath and unique core allow the Duetto to be durable and easy to handle while reducing drag through gear and over rock. Now available in new DryXP, UIAA Certified Water Repellent.
Available Lengths: 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 m // DryXP available in all lengths.

"My Sterling Duetto DryXP was the bomb. For six days in a row of dragging it up glaciers in all conditions from firm to powder to corn it never soaked up an ounce of water. Remarkable! Makes all the difference in the world when you have to coil it up every run and carry it on your back. Thank you for making my job easier, safer and more fun all the time!"
