Move seamlessly from the crag to a backcountry ice flow with the versatile Black Diamond 9.6 FullDry. Featuring an Endurance sheath that utilizes a 1X1 weave construction to lengthen the ropes’ lifespan and make it more abrasion-resistant, the BD 9.6 has a dry treated core and sheath that protects it from the inside out against weather. The rope’s 9.6 diameter hits that sweet spot of being thin enough for a hard sport redpoint, but thick enough to take a seasonal beating in the desert and then easily transition to winter ice pitches. With a middle marker and comfortable handling that knots easily and feeds smoothly through a belay device, the BD 9.6 FullDry is our multi-faceted, all-weather workhorse.
