5 out of 5

when you're guiding, weight is always a factor. leading multi-pitch climbs for clients can be taxing, but with the fuse (rope) it's more fun than work!!! i luv the light weight and the durability of the fuse. it handles well and glides on all terrains. this past summer, i took a friend up on the regular route of fairview dome in tuolemne. with a huge crowd behind us, the supple and light fuse worked best for the meandering upper pitches. i recommend this rope to both recreational and professional climbers.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Lasts forever, Performance
Ideal alpine rope
January 06, 2011
Purchased the 70 m in green. Compared to other ropes in this category, the Petzl is a few grams per meter lighter but seems just as durable as anything else I've used. Like the other reviewer, I would not recommend this for working sport or trad routes, but it is my go-to tool for alpine trips or multi-pitch routes where going with 60 meters buys you an extra "mini-pitch" or two. Have used the Dragonfly (x2) as well in the past and have nothing but good things to say about Petzl ropes. The fuse is not the most supple rope in history, but I'll take durability over softness for its intended use.Pros: Build quality, Performance
Did you recently buy the Petzl Fuse 9.4mm Climbing Rope? Write a review.
Light and handles great

I used it in several local crags. It is so light that I am willing to take it to a longer approach. It was also easy to feed the rope thru some of the zig-zag routes.

Just bought this rope yesterday and took it sport climbing. Great handling immediately, and no kinks unlike my old rope. Super-smooth clipping and near weightlessness helped me send a project first-try. Or maybe I was just stronger...
Very light, packs small

This is a 70m rope that fits in my pack better than my 60m9.8 and feels lighter. I can't believe how much difference it makes on the 100+ foot routes. I can actually pull up and clip with not problem. Works well with Cinch belay, but too small in GriGri.
Go to alpine/mulit-pitch rope

Light and durable. Little stiffer hand than most but is preferable for me. Clips easy and there is less chance of a snag when pulling after a rap on low angle (read: alpine) terrain. One the skinny side so feeds well through a belay device up top while in auto-block mode. Wouldn't make my "workhorse" rope for top roping and working on problems with lots of falls...keep the 10.2 for those.
