    Sterling Ion2 BiColor 9.4 mm Rock Climbing Rope - The Ion2 climbing rope from Sterling Rope is the largest diameter rope in the Fusion range. Its unique design is manufactured by first twisting multiple colored fibers into a single sheath-strand and then braiding the sheath to create the speckled pattern. Its diameter is a great size for intermediate climbers looking to match a lightweight rope with performance while knowing that the diameter isn't too thin for a beginner belayer. When getting ready to rappel or hauling your rope back up after the climb, fighting to find the middle of your rope can be a tedious task. The BiColor version of the Ion2 takes the guesswork out by offering a bright change in color half way down the rope. Get light weight and great performance with the Sterling Fusion Ion2 Bicolor 9.4 mm rock climbing rope.

    I’ve used the Ion for several months now on everything from long, hard trad routes to desert cragging to hangdogging on granite sport climbs. The rope has a great, solid feel to it and the sheath is super smooth and handles well. A little extra care needs to be taken since this is a skinny rope, but all the belay devices I’ve tried (standard ATC’s, Grigri’s, and the Cinch) worked just fine. It doesn’t have that slippery, waxy feeling that some new ropes have. In terms of catch, in all honesty the skill of one’s belayer has a lot more to do with how the rope feels, and I found nothing to be remarkable about the Ion on this count. Durability is perhaps a more important consideration in a rope review. The Ion does indeed seem to be in excellent shape considering how much climbing I’ve done with it. In fact, the rope shows very little, if any, fuzzing of the sheath and still feels like the same, skinny cord it was when I first used it.
