Built for versatility, the Black Diamond 8.5 scales both rock and ice. Designed to be used as half ropes or in a twin configuration, the 8.5 features a dry treated core and sheath to repel moisture from the inside out. The sheath’s 2X2 weave construction increases the 8.5’s lifespan, while the middle marker is easily identifiable for rappels. 

  • Dry Performance—With a core and sheath that are dry treated, our dry treated ropes are protected against weather from the inside out
  • 2X2 Woven Sheath—Utilizing a 2X2 weave construction, our standard sheath is built to withstand everyday use
  • Durability and Handling Balance—Purpose-built to balance both durability and great handling, our ropes are not too stiff and not too soft, giving you a great feeling rope that knots easily, feeds through your belay device with ease, yet holds up to a barrage of use
  • Half/twin ropes must be used in pairs.  Do not use as a single rope
