Very smooth, very supple, nice, tight weave. I just bought this rope as my first rope this past month and got to use it last weekend. I have an Omega SBG ATC that generates MASSIVE amounts of natural friction, to the point where it's a strain to feed rope when belaying after a while. Well, my 10.5mm Altea feeds nicely through the Omega, which was a concern of mine. The rope is rated 9 falls, though I haven't taken one on it YET, so I can't speak for durability just yet. For the $$, this rope seems like a good buy, for a first rope and maybe an extra.
