The Edelweiss Canyon EverDry Static Rope – 9.6mm is specifically designed for use in canyoneering, and is water resistant for lightness and durability. This rope handles easily, even out of the box, but requires a soak before using, as there will be a small amount of shrinkage. All in all, this rope is a good value for the price and a great option for beginner cannoneers, and even those who would like to do a bit of top-roping, although there is too much stretch for use on lead climbing.
