The Marathon Pro 10.1mm Rope by Sterling can easily be described as the best all around rope for durability and handling. At 10.1mm, the Pro has performed to the highest standards on more routes than most of the competition combined. It features a low impact force and as with all of our ropes DryCore.
The Sterling Marathon Pro Dry Climbing Rope is the do-it-all line for sport and trad climbers who need a light rope for ultra-hard routes, but who don't want to wear it out every season. Its durable sheath stands up to the abuse of your next project, and easy-handling characteristics help you fire in quick clips when it's time for the redpoint. The Marathon Pro comes with a DryCore for times when you're climbing in the cold, wet alpine world and need a light single line for a steep, hard route.

This is one of the best ropes on the market. It feeds well, clips well, is super durable too. It's a great lead rope and a great top ropping rope as well. It's not the lightest or skinniest, so you probably wont see it on cutting edge alpine routes or 5.14 red points. But if you're gonna abuse it (i.e. you're a new climber, outdoor group coordinator) this rope is your choice.
I climbed multiple seasons on it, then chopped it and got another two years with it in the gym.
I finally got the chance to test this rope out, for a few days, and I am impressed. Typically I have to walk at least a mile and negotiate some class four cracks to arrive at my destination, which means I don't like to take heavy equipment. This rope feels so much lighter than any 10.1 rope I have had, and takes falls like a champ. I can't wait to see how long this rope will last!
I have used the marathon 10.1 for about 20 pitches (Shelf Road, Poudre Canyon, Penitente Canyon) now and I would recommend this rope to anyone that likes a rope (it feels like a 9.8) that is lightweight, incredibly easy to handle as well as super durable.
i've been extremely impressed with my sterling rope! this rope is supple and smooth, but durable as all hell. Others cant believe it is over 10mm. If your looking for a one rope wonder this is it.
