The Edelrid Python Touchtec Standard 10. 0mm Climbing Rope is the perfect choice for young, aspiring sport climbers who want to ditch the gym and explore the outdoors. TouchTec technology makes the first and last five meters feel and look different than the rest of the rope so your belayer knows when the Python is at its end. This is particularly useful for long routes and beginning belayers. Its bi pattern design helps climbers find the middle of the rope with ease. Edelrid also added a Thermo Shield treatment for excellent handling. Its 10mm diameter makes this an excellent entry level climbing rope, but it still remains surprisingly lightweight to keep intermediate and advanced climbers happy too. Get the 60 meter length for standard sport routes, or get the 70 meter if you want to get into multipitch climbing or longer sport routes.
