    Description

    The Beal Joker is the original triple rated rope, meaning it has been tested and passed the UIAA tests for a single, half and twin rope. Essentially this means that it's an incredibly versatile rope suitable for high level sport or wall use, as a scrambling, ski touring and alpine rope or as a trad climbing half rope.

    Suitable for use as a confidence rope, scrambling or wall rope as well as for mountaineering and high level sport the Joker really can be used for anything.

    It's available with Beal's Dry Cover or Golden Dry coatings. These treatments prevent the rope from absorbing almost any water, protect from dirt, heat and abrasion. The Dry Cover is only added to the sheath which gives the rope some additional protection and increases its longevity, but it isn't ideal for prolonged use in wet conditions. The Golden Dry cover applies the treatment to the sheath and the core ensuring the rope will not freeze when used for winter and ice climbing and it preventing it getting really heavy if it gets wet, it also lasts much longer than the Dry Cover which can rub off over time.

    Trainee British Mountain Guide James Clapham Reviews the Beal Joker

    The original triple rated rope is up against stiff competition now from several others. It isn't the lightest (we're talking a few grams here) but the extra weight means the rope is a touch thicker and in my experience more durable. This is my go-to rope for most situations and gets used on UK rock, Scotland, Alpine ridges and even as a single on Alpine North Faces. The Golden dry treatment is in a league of its own and significantly better than the dry cover option. If using this rope in Scotland or the mountains this makes a huge difference.

    The only place it isn't 100% ideal is as a single sport rope where some care is needed with catching falls as it is quite a thin and slick rope. Also Beal's factory coiling is very tight and it takes a few uses to get the rope to soften up and start behaving itself.
