Sterling Rope FUSION ION2 9.4mm X 60M Bi-Color Dry Rope
The speckled pattern in this rope comes from twisting multi-colored strands then braiding the sheath. The largest diameter rope in Sterling's Fusion range, the ION2 is a great size for intermediate climbers looking to match a lightweight rope with performance while knowing that the diameter isn't too thin for a beginner belayer. Bi-colored, bi-patterned and duodess (it's all the same) helps you find the middle easily.
The II is 3 grams-per-meter lighter than its predecessor, making it one of the lightest in the 9.4mm category. Sterling's dry treatments to the yarns and the sheath protects your rope from water absorption while keeping it strong, eliminating weight gain, the risk of freezing, and slowing rope wear considerably. Consider this if you ... are an intermediate climber doing both sport and trad routes.
