Rope deal!

| Sports
Climbing rope is expensive, but for some reason prices vary quite dramatically. So, while your basic 60m rope in 10.2-10.5 mm usually runs about $150 for standard or $170-180 for dry treated (mostly useful if you're ice climbing or your rope would otherwise be likely to get significantly wet), 20% discounts (to $120 for non-dry are pretty common). But right now Backcountry.com is running a special on Beal Edlinger 10.2mm 60 meters: $97 for dry treated. I've heard pretty good things about this rope and bought the non-dry version (now out of stock) for $83 yesterday.
