I would have preferred a 70m but $200 is an offer I can't refuse. I was looking a Sterling Helix 9.5 70 but that costs about $400 after my discount!

I'm going to China in a couple of months and wanted to get a new rope for the trip. I'm not planning on using it too much in the Bluies (sport climbing mainly) because of the rope wear so hopefully the length won't be an issue. Apparently the dry treatment really helps with rope wear compared to the untreated rope so it should make it a little more durable.

I have a 9.2 sterling evolution aero which is still my favourite rope, but I only use it a Arapiles because it would get trashed in a session Blue Mountains sport climbing :)
