The Swift 48 Pro Dry 8.9mm X 70M Climbing Rope is the pinnacle of rope braiding technology and applicable to a range of different climbing disciplines. It has three full UIAA certifications and with its versatile design, it can function as a single, double, or twin rope. Made with 48 bobbins, its fine sheath structure makes for easy handling and unmatched abrasion resistance for a rope of this diameter. Take your climbing to the next level with the Swift 48 Pro Dry.

The dry treatment on the Edelrid Swift Pro Dry is not a coating like other brands use. But instead it is impregnated into the core and sheath itself meaning that it cannot wear off. Giving you a rope that will stay cleaner for longer, maintain more strength when wet and won't freeze up over time when ice or alpine climbing. Also features a half way marker for safe rappeling. 

We strongly recommend that you use the Swift 8.9 in conjuction with an auto-locking or assisted breaking belay device like the Edelrid Mega Jul or the Petzl Gri Gri



Different applications for the Edelrid Swift 48 Pro Dry 9.8mm Climbing Rope

Alpine Rope

Use the Swift Pro Dry 8.9mm as a fast and light alpine rope. On glaciers or easier terrain use as a single rope but on technical ground when more gear is needed to be placed you can use in conjunction with another Swift or thinner half rope as a half rope set. 
Use as a set of twin ropes when the route is faily straight forward but you need two lengths of rope to rap off. Clip each piece of gear with both ropes.

Trad Climbing

Use the Swift Pro Dry as a single rope when the route follows a straight line of protection like a vertical crack.
If the route wanders or the rope would have to run over edges or around corners than pair it with another 8.9mm or thinner half rope and use as doubles.

Sport Climbing

Want the lightest rope in the world with the least amount of drag to give you the edge when going for that send? You cannot blame the rope when it only weighs 52grams/m, and being 8.9mm will flow through your gear like nobody’s business. 

*Not suitable for top roping or working routes as this will cause excessive wear.
