DescriptionMove seamlessly from the crag to a backcountry ice flow with the versatile Black Diamond 9.6 FullDry. Featuring an Endurance sheath that utilizes a 1X1 weave construction to lengthen the ropes’ lifespan and make it more abrasion-resistant, the BD 9.6 has a dry treated core and sheath that protects it from the inside out against weather. The rope’s 9.6 diameter hits that sweet spot of being thin enough for a hard sport redpoint, but thick enough to take a seasonal beating in the desert and then easily transition to winter ice pitches. With a middle marker and comfortable handling that knots easily and feeds smoothly through a belay device, the BD 9.6 FullDry is our multi-faceted, all-weather workhorse.

9.6 - 60m FullDry Climbing Rope is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Justen from Durable yet Supple Tying into this cord allows me to focus when above my gear. The sheath feels durable yet has enough suppleness to help the performance. The middle marker seems to be thick black which I hope will last when its not so new. As a belayer the middle marker is noticeable going through the device which is a good thing in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ward from Sheath is the best part on the ropes Built to take abuse. Even though the diameters keep getting smaller, the sheath seems to keep getting more burly. I'm impressed. What about some static rope options? Pull down cord? Burly 10.5 lead line for the few of us that climb on choss???
