Edelrid Skimmer Pro Dry 7.1mm Half/Twin Rope
The Edelrid Skimmer is the thinnest, lightest half rope currently available, coming in at 7.1mm diameter and just 36g/m. The minimal weight makes it ideal for alpine adventures, where every gram counts. A pair of these could be used clipped together as twin ropes for straight-up ice climbing, or split as half ropes on intricate mixed pitches.
This ludicrously low weight is achieved by meticulous fine-tuning while preparing the yarn and setting the braiding machine, and allows Edelrid to meet the spec for both half and twin ropes while maintaining a 40% sheath content (essential to cope with the extra wear and tear of an alpine environment.
Please bear in mind, the Skimmer is so thin, you may need a new belay device to handle it. We recommend the Edelrid Micro Jul.
