Review by: kmc, 2006-11-18

I have had this rope (bi-color version) for about 2 years. It has seen a lot of use, and it has stood up to the test. Mostly leading on rock (trad), and a bit of leading and some toproping on ice. Have been climbing an average of 5-10 days a month. The rope is just now starting to show signs of wear, getting too soft, doesnt feed well through belay device. No sheath damage, except for a slight graze from a crampon point, but i certainly can't fault the rope for that.
Now its time to replace it, and will mostly likely get another lighting pro, or another Blue Water Skinny single line.
