Roca Minus Rope Review - No 224

Roca Minus 9.8, $199

Summary: If you’re looking for a skinny rope that can take a beating on abrasive multi-pitch granite or sandstone, the Roca Minus is an ideal candidate. This cord holds the most UIAA falls of any rope in the group, and was the only rope tested that passes the UIAA sharp-edge

standard. You will want to pay special attention during your first few days using the cord, as the dry treatment had a very slick feel.

Pros: Very durable.

Cons: Dry treatment initially very slick.

Overall grade: B
