Whipping like a famous jockey isn't usually something you plan on, but you can embrace your unexpected flights when you're tied into the Edelrid Heron 9. 8mm Climbing Rope. It's light, at just 62 grams per meter, but it is still rated to handle 8 UI falls and 8. 7kN of impact force, so you can use it as your trad rope, your sendy sport line, and even in the gym. Edelrid also finished the Heron with Thermo Shield and Pro Shield treatments to improve handling over the life of the rope, and topped it all off with a Dry Shield water and dirt repellent treatment to keep your cord as pristine as possible.
