Released recently, the Jokers are quickly becoming Beal's best-selling ropes due to their versatility, longevity, and performance ideal for advanced climbers. This Joker Soft Unicore Climbing Rope sports the same specs as the original 9. 1mm diameter, except a softer feel adds more fluidity that's pleasant to use for advanced experts. Given its softer feel, this model slides through carabiners and belay devices better to reduce rope drag on wandering routes. Its Unicore construction bonds the rope's core to the sheath to stop the two from slipping off each other like most ropes do after awhile. Certified as a single, half, or twin rope, the Joker shines whether you're projection sport routes or tackling traditional multi-pitches.
