hey guys,
I've wanted to buy my first climbing rope for a while now, but I am not sure which one to get. Basically all I want is a durable single rope for lead climbing.
Any suggestions?

Just get something cheap, no need to drop a ton of cash on a first rope. Something like a 10.2mm would be good. The Ally 10.3mm is a good first rope, its pretty cheap.

If a 50 meter rope will cover what you want to climb (gym, single pitch, shorter crag, etc.) then you can get this one for $120:

The Ally I suggested is the non-dry version of the rope you posted and its the same price for the 60m.

+1 on the Ally, mine's served me well. Stays pretty stiff, but for around $100 that's barely worth complaining about.
