BEAL ICE LINE UNICORE 1/2 rope 8.1mm Golden Dry

My favorite 1/2 rope for both ice and technical alpine climbing. light, reasonably durable, stays dry and low impact force. the only downside to this rope is I wouldn't want to use it to jug vertical pitches. the Beal Joker is slightly better for that. It saves the need to carry screamers or other load limiters.  also decent for ski mountaineering and glacier travel.


The Beal Ice Line 8.1mm UNICORE is a lightweight half-rope made using Beal’s UNICORE technology. UNICORE permanently bonds the sheath to the core to eliminate sheath slippage and improves performance and safety, especially in wet conditions. The Ice Line’s extremely low impact force settles the nerves when facing less-than-perfect protection points in ice and on mixed routes. A trump card that no alpinist can ignore. STRONG POINTS: • UNICORE Process • Exceedingly low impact force • Smooth performance from one-over-two weave • Abrasion and water resistant with Golden Dry.
