What others are saying

5/5 Stars: I got a Sterling Evolution Velocity short rope for gym climbing and couldn’t be happier. It’s my first Sterling rope and I’m extremely impressed with the hand. It feels remarkably smooth. Mine has taken quite a beating and is still going strong. —John Stewart via

5/5 Stars: I’ve been using the Sterling Velocity 9.8 for years now and it is the best rope I’ve come across for sport and trad climbing. I climb outside about 120 days each year, easily taking 500+ whippers annually and this rope will last me about 13-15 months. I like to buy the 70M because it allows me to chop lengths off the rope as it begins to deteriorate and still be able to climb tall routes. Another great thing about this rope is it doesn’t fatten up too much with use and is the perfect level of rigidity to make clips easily and belays like a dream. You can’t go wrong with this rope. —Sean S. via

5/5 Stars: As expected this is one amazing and smooth rope. The perfect indoor or outdoor sport climbing rope on the market. —Michael Quiapos via
