Nano IX $285 for 70 m, $325 for 80 m Time was, 9.0 mm was the stan­dard for a dou­ble rope, but this ul­tra-thin line is cer­tif ied for use as a sin­gle, as well as a dou­ble or twin rope. At just 52 g per me­tre, it will ap­peal to alpin­ists look­ing for the light­est pos­si­ble line. They will also ap­pre­ci­ate the dry treat­ment to both the core and the sheath. Sport climbers who need a light red­point rope need should also con­sider the Nano IX. Not an all-rounder for top-rop­ing and heavy abra­sion ap­pli­ca­tions, but a great choice for ex­pe­ri­enced climbers who want to shave weight.
