Is this a good idea? I've searched for reviews on this particular rope and did not find anything. I saw a review on another Edelweiss rope, people said it frayed very fast. Ill be using it for top roping outdoors. Any feedback would be awesome!

you can buy 2-3 of the rocklights for the price of some ropes. Even if the durability sucks it'll still be cheaper in the end

I want a decent rope that isn't going to fray apart. I just found some threads on this site about this rope. Nothing too bad I guess. Ill be using it for lead climbing as well and dont want anything funny happening if I have to take a fall

They were on sale a week ago on ebay for like 80 bucks/60 M. Edelweiss has always been a leader in rope design and manufacturing for decades...I trust them for sure.

I talked to a couple folks about this cord... it's not a Mammut, but for $80, so what ? it lasts a year and then you have a good tr line

I've had a few Edelweiss ropes over the years. No complaints.

im a big fan of cheap ropes for cragging ...

my last 85$ rope lasted 1000+ pitches climbing full time

my current 100$ rope is going long and strong after 6 months

a $$$$$ rope MAY last a bit longer, but not enough to offset the price ... if youre going to be taking a lot of whippers you may want to spend more on something with a softer catch and stays supple

but as a general workhorse, el cheapo ropes are the way to go ...

course i also have $$$$$ mammuts for long multi and other fun stuff ... but i save those for where it matters
