Beal Climbing Rope Reviews

Check out the Beal Climbing Rope Reviews with comparisons of the Beal Edlinger, Beal Joker and Beal Booster and Beal Booster III.

Beal Edlinger Rope Review
With easy handling, a moderate diameter, and durable Beal construction, the Beal Edlinger 10.2mm Standard Rope is the perfect option for those looking for a top-roping cord or an all-around rope for sport and trad routes. At 10.2mm, you get the long life of a traditional fat rope with the weight savings of new school skinny cords. Bottom Line: A moderate, all-around cord for any day on the rocks.

Beal Edlinger 10.2mm Standard Rope review
Mmmmm whippers…The Edlinger is a solid “day at the crag” kind of rope. It’s 35% dynamic feature allows it to catch falls quite well.

I personally i have taken a couple of nasty whippers on mine and have found it to have a very soft catch.

While not your light weight, super thin, water proof, super amazing rope, I have found the Beal Edlinger to be a solid all arounder.

And for such a price, who could ask for more?

As the only rope in the world certified as a single, half, and twin rope, the Beal Joker 9.1mm Rope gives you complete versatility for everything from sketchy ice pitches to sport test pieces to snowy ridge climbs. Its ultra-thin diameter gives it a low overall weight, and the Dry Cover treatment stops the rope from absorbing water and freezing in the mountains and enhances durability for multiple days at the crags. Tie into the Joker, and climb any route, in any conditions. Bottom Line: Think a rope this light and versatile must be a joke? Think again.

Beal Joker 9.1mm Rope review

Very versatile. I have never used it for anything other than a single rope in alpine, trad, and or hard multi pitch climbs. The Beal joker rope excelled at that do to its very low weight for a single rope and dry treatment. The only down side is the few falls its rated for. But the middle mark is very nice. I would consider using as a half rope but the impact force and weight are fairly high for that as compared to 8.1mm ropes. And twin I don’t really see the use of that technique. But if I was on a tight budget I would buy two and have the versatility of all three styles but with only 2 ropes instead of 5 and the gear to conquer the world.

The Beal Booster 9.7mm Rope’s easy handling and light weight make it an ideal like for hard sport routes and the toughest trad climbs. A 10-fall rating ensures you can take whipper after whipper without worry. Beal also added a center mark, so you don’t come up short on a long lower or end up rappelling with uneven ends. Bottom Line: Send the hard stuff.

Beal Booster III 9.7mm rope review

Great rope. Been using the Booster for a couple of years now and I love it. Easy handling, relatively light, high number of falls, low impact and smooth running. Great for trad, great for sport, even used it on ice. Grab one!

Beal created the Stinger III 9.4mm Golden Dry Rope to give sport and trad climbers an ultralight line, one that won’t be pulling off your harness as you top out a pitch. You probably won’t want to work out the moves with this ultralight rope, but it’s a great choice when you don’t want to drag an anchor behind you on redpoint attempts. This Beal line features a Golden Dry treatment for wet alpine climbing, and a center mark to help you set up rappels quickly. Bottom Line: A thin line for your hardest sends.

Beal Stinger III 9.4mm rope review

Awesome rope. Love this rope, super thin, light, and durable (for its diameter). Have been using it at least once a week for some outdoor craging for the last 6 months, took a bunch of whippers on it, still good. I’d use a thicker one to dog though, 9.4 is quick thin and that’d be a waste. The sheath seems to be very durable,

I just bought a second of these ropes. The first I got over 2 years ago and it has lasted over many, many falls and all through the sandy southern Utah crags. The sheath is still in good shape, but I wanted to replace it because of the large number of falls I’ve taken on it. I’ve been very impressed with this rope!
