Climbing Gear

Petzl Contact 9.8 Climbing Rope

This climbing rope offers top-notch durability, handling, and versatility.

Brand: Petzl

Model: Contact 9.8 Climbing Rope


Specs

Weight

7lbs. 14oz.

Performance

The Contact was soft and supple from day one: easy to clip, effortless to knot, and smooth-running through every type of belay device we tried. And even after a month of heavy use, it hasn’t fuzzed up (a common issue with ropes).

Diameter

The 9.8mm diameter is ideal for both experienced lead climbers and beginner climbers who prefer to toprope. It’s durable, but still light (7.9 pounds for a 60-meter rope).

Middle mark

A clearly visible, central mark makes the Contact great for multipitch climbs and descents involving a rappel.

$215 (60m); 7.9 lbs.
