Petzl Dragonfly Dynamic Half Rope 8.2mm Rope – Orange 70m

Besides being one of the lightest half ropes on the market, Petzl’s Dragonfly is also durable, with over a third of its fiber content in the sheath. Perfect for ice and alpine climbing, mountaineering and wandering rock routes.

Duratec Dry treatment helps prevent the rope from absorbing water – which can weaken a rope and make it difficult to handle in freezing conditions. Before a Petzl rope is constructed, the core and sheath strands are individually treated, providing water repellency in case you find yourself in a deluge, snowfield or on a dripping ice chandelier.

All Petzl ropes are butterfly coiled in the factory and are ready to use straight out of the package. This coiling method means no more tangled mess when you first use your new rope. Gone is the tedious operation of carefully uncoiling, flaking and reflaking your new rope, only to end up with annoying kinks. With a Petzl rope, just tie-in and start climbing.

To help facilitate descents, the middle of each Petzl cord is marked with a black bar. Even with this marking, it’s sometimes a good idea to tie a knot at the end of the rope as an additional safety measure.

    Do not buy. These ropes are bad. The very first time I used them the sheath tore exposing the core of the ropes. This was from normal wear and tear – no falls or sharp edges. I sent the damaged ropes back to Petzl for warranty and they could not offer me anything; not even covering the shipping cost for the return. I now learned that other people have had similar problems with Petzl ropes, so I recommend you avoid Petzl ropes altogether.
