Ideal for when light is right on long alpine routes and tricky weather windows, the Black Diamond 7.8 Half Ropes are built for the mountains. Featuring a burly Endurance sheath that uses a unique 1X1 weave construction to lengthen the ropes’ lifespan and make it more abrasion-resistant, the 7.8 is also boasts a dry treated core and sheath, which protects it from the inside out against moisture. The BD 7.8’s are specifically designed to be used in pairs as half ropes (or in a twin configuration) for an ice, alpine or multi-pitch set-up that can handle anything the mountains have to offer.
