A supple half-rope for lightweight ascents and long alpine routes

The 7.9 Dry Climbing Rope from Black Diamond is the tool for the job when you're pushing for the summit. Designed to be used in pairs as a half or twin rope, the 7.9 comes with a burly sheath and dry treatment, making it perfect for alpine or multi-pitch objectives. Black Diamond’s ropes are built for a great feeling rope that knots easily, feeds through your belay device with ease, yet holds up to a barrage of use.

An ideal rope for alpine winter use

Ideal for long alpine routes and tricky weather windows, the Black Diamond 7.9 is built for the mountains. Featuring a burly sheath that uses a 2X2 weave construction to lengthen the rope’s lifespan, the 7.9 also boasts a dry treated core and sheath, which protects it from the inside out against moisture. 

Designed for half and double rope use

Easily identifiable middle markers make doubling and coiling the 7.9 Dry Climbing Rope a doddle. The BD 7.9 is specifically designed to be used in pairs as half ropes or twins for an alpine or multi-pitch set-up, making them perfect for anything the mountains have to offer.
