Beal Rando 8mm Dry Cover Rope -
For treacherous glacier crossings or short rappels during steep backcountry ski descents, the Beal Rando Dry Cover Rope does the trick. Pair it with another and use it in a twin-rope setup for short technical mountaineering pitches as well. Beal added markings every 12 meters for spacing multiple tie-ins, and at only 37 grams per meter, the Rando won’t weigh down your pack on the approach hike.

Beal Rando 8mm Dry Cover Rope Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

This lives in the bottom of my ski pack with my Camp Alp 95, Camp Photon, and DMM Bugette. I've always like the thinner lines from Beal (I use a set of Ice Lines as well) and these are no exception. It is a great rando rope to have when you need to rappel short sections or do some simulclimbing while out skiing. The length is manageable and if your partner has one as well you have a versatile system for belaying, rappelling, and getting out of jams in the alpine. The weight is minimal and I have no problem bringing it with me on near any outing where I plan on being in terrain where I may need it.

This rope has been coming along for years. Its so great to split up the weight of a sixty by carrying two 30m. Obviously some disadvantages but overall pretty great. It also comes along as a safety rope, which it wouldn't if it was sixty metres.
They say you should always carry a rope when going into the unknown, this is one you won't feel the weight of but will save you when you need it to.

I have used this as a glacier rope for two people and carried it on big skimo days either on its own or paired with a superlight 5mm tag line. It packs small, is lightweight and seems to be fairly durable. Also nice to have as a just in case for belaying trickier than expected sections scrambling or on glaciers.

I bought this for glacier travel and now use it for scrambling as well as backing up the occasional sketchy old school bolts that we come across. Nice rope for the price as well as only weighing around 1.5 pounds!

This rope was perfect for the intended use as a light rescue when snowboarding off Piste. It fit well in a medium backpack.

This rope is awsome! I took it with me on a back pack trip for short repeals and it did just that

I bought this for a compact, light "scrambling" rope to use for short rappels and such. It works pretty well for just that. I have a couple of complaints though. First, I'm not pleased with the dry treatment. I took it out for the first time in the rain and it soaked up water like a sponge. I hung it up in my house and it took about 3 days to dry. I also question the durability. There are small strands of nylon poking out from the sheath after only one use. I don't think it affects the strength in the short term, but I don't expect this rope to last as long as the others. I've used several other ropes and none of them did anything like this.
