The SIMOND DRY ropes more than meet UIAA requirements The rope's mechanical features last longer in cold and wet conditions.

    Abseil Rope 7.5mm x 60m

    Now in its 3rd winter of regular use and still going strong/showing very little sign of wear. Packaging has always shown this to be used as a half or twin rope. Amazing price for a sheath and core dry-treated rope.

    Weight unclear

    This is advertised as 36g/m but the label shows 30m as 1230g (41g/m). This is a pretty large discrepency for a small rope

    Brand response :

    Thanks for your feedback on the Simond rope, I appreciate the time you have taken to provide such critical information. I am in touch with the product manager to alter the description as soon as possible. Enjoy your mountaineering!

    Simond hiking rope 7.5

    Service and price.v good

    Being this narrow it is likely to be a half rope, but this is not mentioned in the description.
    This raises safety issues about the limitation of the rope. In particular that it should be used double for any climbing work ( belaying/ absailling) .
