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.

The Beal Joker Unicore 9.1mm x 80M climbing rope is a pinnacle of innovation and reliability in the climbing world. Engineered with Beal’s cutting-edge Unicore technology, this rope ensures exceptional safety and durability, setting a high standard for climbers worldwide. Its slender 9.1mm diameter strikes a perfect balance between lightweight agility and robust performance, catering to the needs of both sport climbers and alpinists who require a versatile rope for various terrains and challenges.

Crafted with precision, the Beal Joker Unicore rope offers outstanding handling and grip, providing climbers with a secure feel and optimal control during ascents and descents. Its 80-meter length offers versatility, allowing for longer climbs and rappels without compromising on safety. The incorporation of Unicore technology ensures that even in the unlikely event of a severe cut, the core and sheath remain bonded together, preventing the rope from completely severing, thus enhancing climber safety. This rope’s exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and reliability make it a go-to choice for climbers seeking top-notch performance and peace of mind during their adventures.
