Gear Review: Beal Booster 9.7mm

The Beal Booster 9.7mm rope recently received some love from UKClimbing.com. In their review of the rope, the British review site called the rope "easy to flake," "resistant to kinking," "an extremely hard wearing rope that will take a lot of punishment," and "a sport climbing workhorse."

The Booster is part of Beal's Mountain Line of ropes that features dry treated cords for all-mountain applications. The rope excels as a sport climbing rope, but performs just as well in trad or alpine climbing. This rope weighs in at only 63 g/m, has a low impact force of 7.3 kn, and is rated to 9 UIAA falls.
