Edelweiss Element II ARC 10.2mm Climbing Rope -
If you're looking for a project cord with a reliable diameter and not a lot of extra weight, tie in to the Edelweiss Element II ARC 10.2mm Climbing Rope. An impact force rating of just 7.8 kN means you won't have to endure fighter jet g-forces if your project spits you off, and dynamic elongation of 37 percent further ensures a soft catch if you fall.


  • HD Cover braiding technology produces a smoother rope surface which is more comfortable to handle and more abrasion resistant


  • Perform 3 innovation improves flexibility and impact-force absorption, while decreasing weight
  • ARC (Advanced Rope Control) design features a bi-pattern for enhanced tracking during belaying or rappelling
  • HD Cover technology braids threads individually for a smoother surface and better friction management
  • Perform 3 technology uses optimized braiding and thread torsion to produce a rope that is true to the Edelweiss reputation of durability and reliability while also weighing less, handling better, and offering even more shock absorption
  • ARC (Advanced Rope Control) concept utilizes a change in sheath design (color/pattern) at the midpoint for increased safety
  • Great for all-around use on sport climbs or multipitch trad routes

Edelweiss Element II ARC 10.2mm Climbing Rope Reviews:


Edelweiss makes great ropes. The Element II is a solid and versatile rope. relatively light compared to others. Good dynamic elongation provides a nice soft catch when peeling off a wall. This rope uses what Edelweiss calls Perform 3 technology (better flexibility and impact absorption with lower overall weight). The sheath is made by braiding individual threads instead of braiding in pairs. This equals a smoother feeling sheath with less tendency for drag and more resistance to abrasion wear. I've had this rope for only 2 seasons now; but, it seems to show true to claims in my experience. This is a good wearing rope.
The ARC (bi-pattern weave) is awesome. I always thought marking the center was easy and less expensive. However, marking the center only helps when you can see the center. A bi-pattern weave lets you know whether you have passed the center or not, even if you can't see the actual center point. Common tasks like setting up top rope or cleaning a climb are simplified by this feature. My next rope will have a bi-pattern weave again.
I've been using my Element for 2 years now mostly on sport routes leading and top roping. 10.2 with the HD sheath means this rope may be retired due to age before it wears out. Most rope companies work hard to provide a good product. The sheath feel and elongation ratings make this rope better than many. I would recommend this rope to anyone looking for a versatile workhorse rope that will see a lot of pitches.

The Element II is an excellent rope that is very tough and light. Mine has been my life line on sport to big alpine climbs. Handles great! In 20+ years of climbing I've never had a 10.2 that feeds as if it was much thinner. The sheath is very durable and ARC (bi-pattern) is always a plus. Core repels water like a charm. The elongation is perfect so catches are soft. Mine is a work horse and has been through a lot and still looks and works great.

ARC means bi-color. So, there is no such thing as a "one color" ARC rope. So, when advertising the price of an ARC rope, it does not range from $199.9, since $199.9 is not for an ARC rope. This listing needs to be corrected.

Super-high Quality sheath, tightly woven to reduce wear, Ever-dry core lives up to its name and doesn't absorb water. This rope is a super workhorse fo leads and top-ropes. Cowboy up and go for quality!
