The top-selling climbing rope at Outdoor Gear Exchange. The Edelweiss Rocklight is a good intermediate rope that provides a balance between durability and weight for the climber who expects to take some falls, but still wants a rope that's lighter than a 10.5.

- for single pitch sport climbing and for the price, awesome rope
Although my ideal rope has a center mark/bi-pattern, dry-treatment and is 70m, for the price and for the right kind of climbing (ie. single pitch sport climbing), this rope is excellent. It is very "flow-y" and yet doesn't twist up more than any other rope. It is super stretchy and after about 30 pitches of sport leads and TRs, there is very little fraying of the sheath. My only complaint is that in addition to not being crazy about the rope's aesthetic, the yellow shows dirt pretty bad. These are quite superficial complaints, though.
On a budget, don't plan on rapping multiple pitches, aren't in danger of getting stormed on in the middle of a 10 pitch line? Get this rope.
- Best value
- I "stole" a 70 meter a while ago for $90 online.. Thought it wouldn't last long or might not handle well. I've now used it for leading multi pitch trad at Red Rocks, Tahquitz, and Tuolumne. Is not only good for the price I paid, I like it better than $250 ropes I've climb on. No signs of abrasion or wear or any problems. Great rope at any price.
- Killer deal
Bought this rope before a trip to Thailand. We expected to beat it up for a few weeks and throw it away assuming it wouldn't last too long on account of the cheap price tag. However, several months later, we are still using it several times a week for all types of climbing, including many falls and hangdogging sessions.
Overall, much more durable than expected, handles great too. I'm not quite sure why us consumers should be expected to pay more than double the price for a "higher end" model.
- Great Buy
- I purchased this rope recently and could not be happier with my selection. While it has no center mark or treatments it has excellent knotability and a nice feel. The price is well worth it I would buy another one when it comes time to retire this one. I was extremely impressed with GearX's shipping, all my products arrived together well ahead of the maximum shipping time. For a climber who is just starting out or a more experienced climber who wants to try a thinner rope this product simply cannot be beat.
