This is the multi-use rope par excellence. If you don’t want to own more than one double rope, it’s the COBRA you must have. It has a low impact force (5.1 kN) to minimise anchor-point loading, and a sheath of sufficient thickness to withstand the most aggressive rock, all for only 48 g per metre.
- Excellent compromise between strength and lightness;
- Low impact force and raised the number of falls sustained;
- The rope doesn’t bunch up and remains supple for the long term;
- Allows escaping by abseil even if the sheath is cut.
For use in all sorts of mountaineering and adventure climbing.
