The Petzl rope line was developed with Petzl’s requirements for quality and performance, meeting the needs of users engaged in any vertical activity. With this in mind, each rope is crafted according to precise specifications suited to its use. Further, all Petzl ropes benefit from an approach that focuses on:
– durability in terms of number of falls held, and overall abrasion resistance
– optimizing the elongation necessary to achieve the desired shock absorption
– excellent grip for greater fluidity in handling and use in belay devices
– optimal weight

Ultrasonic welding bonds the core and sheath together at the rope ends. Gives greater durability and avoids frayed ends.
DuraTec Dry Treatment
Dry treatment, making the rope more resistant to water,
dirt and abrasion. Handling, grip and other characteristics
are retained longer in cold, wet conditions.
Specific coil makes the rope ready to use. Helps the user avoid initial uncoiling mistakes, and increases longevity.
Special thermal treatment stabilizes the core strands and improves consistency. Provides excellent grip and handling over time.
Cut for movement, built for activity, worn with pride…
Sometimes you just have to do your own thing.

I have been eyeing up these bad boys for a while. I have take more to quarry crack and grit crack climbing. For most of it i have been in need of a few micro cams. As it stand i only have a Camelot c4 2, Metolius Master cam 5 and a wild country helium friend 2.4. All of these a reasonably big. So an investment in some micro cams may be an asset to my rack, and these seem to fit the bill.
