Not my first rope, but something to beat the crap out of when working routes. Sturdy, dependable and feeds well. As far as handling goes it handles well and feeds nicely. If you want a dependable rope you can beat the heck out of this is excellent.

I'm replacing it now after a substantial year worth, with lots of rock-drag TR routes. always a soft catch. more static elongation than i would prefer. fuzzes pretty easily. gets dirty. knots OK. provides tons of friction in BRD's. makes lowering light climbers/drag routes overly slow. never have to worry about not catching the fall though. i'm going DRY and thinner this time around.

This rope is nice, I've had it for about a year, and I'm going to have to buy a new one this summer, but it's seen ALOT of action. It feeds well, and has a very grippy sheath, always held my prussiks, ATC, gri gri well. stains easily and picks up dirt like whoa. Pretty soft catches though. It knots well but it doesn't handle exceptionally well clipping, although at this size you shouldn't expect that. Great value. I've had a few headaches over how easily it kinks/tangles, which is probably fueled by its lack of coating. Not the best abrasion resistance, but again, it doesn't have a coat so it shouldn't. Never let me down to hard.

My girlfriend bought me this rope last xmas... my first rope. I took it climbing at a local quarry, and it got diry and hasn't come clean since! It became extraordinarly stiff quickly, and I won't use it on lead anymore. Tough to flake now after only a year of moderate climbing.
I was really surprised as I really trust the name of Mammut, maybe I just got a bad rope? This is my first rope but my friend's rope who were bought at the same time or before all are in much better condition. I take very good care of my gear and washed it only once with mild detergent.
