 SOLD *NEW* Millet Alpine Lite 7.9 x 60m dry rope, uber light!


This is a brand new, never used, still in factory packaging, Millet Alpine Lite dry rope.

I bought it planning on using it for some ice climbs this winter, but never got around to it. It is marked "2011", and the factory warranty is for 3 years.

One of the lightest ropes out there, as a half rope it is perfect for technical routes, or for use as a glacier line or for roping up on snowfields where falls are more like slips than vertical drops. At 60m you‘ll have plenty of distance for rapping down.

At 5 lbs, 6 oz, this is a VERY light rope for 60m.

Paypal $125, PM for details

Diameter 7.9 mm

Double rope.

Available in 50m, 60m, 2x50m, 2x60m.

An evolved version of the Pro Alpine in which we have achieved the feat of shedding a further 1-2 g/m to create a double rope for technical mountain routes (snow, ice, mixed).

- Double rope: 41g
- Double rope: 580 daN
- Double rope: 5
- Double rope: 35.1%
- Double rope: 32


Ten years‘ work with Cousin Trestec means Millet can now offer a range of highquality ropes featuring the latest technology.

The HYDROPHOBIC Process protects the core and sheath by polymerisation. The process activates a physical barrier on each filament, thus blocking water incursion by capillarity and reducing the phenomenon of internal abrasion. Eighteen months of lab and field tests gave clear results: even after abrasion wear, the HYDROPHOBIC Process remains effective when other treatments no longer exist. And to extend this benefit even further.

The HYDROPHOBIC Process is standard on all Millet ropes*.
All of MILLET‘s dynamic ropes have a MIDDLE MARKING. MIDDLE MARKING = a 15cm-long black mark to show the middle of the rope. This is an ESSENTIAL SAFETY detail to prevent the classic accident caused by being lowered with a rope that‘s too short.
SPECIAL MILLET FEATURE: our double ropes comprise two half-ropes of equal length, intended for mountain activities (2x50m or 2x60m). Each half-rope is middle-marked, so you can easily do a short abseil (25m-30m) using only one half of your double rope.
All our dynamic ropes come in an "Anti-twist pack". With this excusive rope folding system, the rope is immediately ready for climbing.
