Thanks everyone. I think I am mostly leaning toward Blue Water Ropes. I have had some experience with them and like that they are Family Owned.


Sterling is also 'family owned'- or at least, a private company owned by one person.

Don't buy Petzl ropes! I've had the pleasure of climbing on a few (from people rightfully being tricked into thinking normal Petzl quality is consistent with Petzl ropes), & I drew one observation: They suck.

If you're going to buy 3 different ropes then I don't know what to tell you, b/c I usually stick with one double & a do-it-all (or as close as I can find) type. I'm on my second Mammut Infinity, which has exceeded my expectations pretty substantially over the past few years. It's super resistant to wear for a 9.5, blah blah blah. I feel like I'd just be echoing what's already stated about the infinity from this review based on my experience with it.

And for my double I use the Beal Ice line. Pretty one-purpose with it (ice & mixed), but so far I've been very pleased. I'd give other recommendations for doubles, but that's the first I've owned/used for an extended period (2 yrs).

I have used mammut for 30+ years. The flash 10.5 is workhorse and lasts forever. the galaxy 10mm is a great , lighter rope

Looking for a few different rope recommendations. 1)Big wall rope - something I can jug on, durable, protect over sharp edges, Maybe 9.7-10.2mm 2)Alpine Routes - Maybe around 8.9-9.1mm, Easy climbing, light and fast 3)Half Ropes for Ice Climbing Thanks in advance. I am just looking for recommendations. Im looking at Blue Water, Sterling, Elderid, New England.


Sterling ropes for everything

And for the record I've used two sterling ion 9.5's, sterling htp static ropes, and I'm waiting to use a new pair of sterling fusion photon half/twin's
