The Petzl Tango 8.5mm x 60m Rope. With a skinny diameter and light weight, the Tango 8.5mm rope by Petzl is an ideal rope to use for multi-pitch rock climbing. Rated as both a half and twin rope, the Tango 8.5mm is a versatile climbing rope that works well with a number of different belay devices. The Tango has an Ultrasonic Finish, meaning that the core and sheath have been bonded together through an ultrasonic process, to keep any ends from fraying and highly increasing the overall durability of the rope. The EverFlex treatment uses thermal technology to stabilise the core strands and ensures the rope has good grip and great handling qualities.
The handy middle marker helps the belayer to identify the centre of the rope for abseiling and lowering or to judge the length climbed on routes. The ClimbReady coil lets you use the rope straight from the store to the crag.
