Hello, my name is Aaron Lawrence and I'm reviewing the Edelweiss Discover 8.5 mm x 30 m alpine touring rope.
I got this rope - courtesy of Altrec.com and Highball Blog gear giveaway - for glacier travel and short rappels, and it is perfect.
Super light weight, strong and handles very, very well. It's treated with "super-ever-dry" so it wont soak up water when plunging up a ridge. You can also use it on technical alpine treks and mountaineering tours to secure your comrade on the most exposed passages.
My climbing partner and I like it so much that we got another, and use them as twin ropes for technical ascents.
Bottom line - a great alpine rope that is always in my winter pack.
