Edelrid Python 10mm

£100

An excellent all rounder that will excel at sport and indoor use, the Python is a durable single dynamic climbing rope that handles beautifully out of the bag. This is thanks to a special Thermo Shield heat stablising treatment, which prevents the shrinking of the fibres, improving suppleness, which I definitely noticed. At 10mm and 64g/m it’s not the lightest out there, but it’s hard wearing, with a healthy fall rating of 7, so ideal for working routes, top roping and general cragging use. I was impressed with its knot-ability and flexibility despite the chunky diameter. The price represents superb value for a premium general-purpose dynamic climbing rope.
