Maxim - Glider 9.9

Weighing at approximately 8.5 lbs the Glider makes an excellent for long hikes in to your favorite icicle. This was the first ice climbing rope I purchase and to be completely honest I had no idea what to look for when I bought it, but that comes with experience.
Typically I've found that Maxim's ropes have had rather stiff sheaths, but I've quickly became a custum this . Despite the stiffness of the sheath its bomber, nearly indestructible, I've had the rope for nearly five years now and it's suffered only a couple minor frays. I have used it for rock climbing the odd time but only really recommend for ice climbing,. Overall the Glider is a great ice climbing rope if you don't mind a bit of a stiffer rope..
