Beal DryCover

Every filament in the sheath of Beal DryCover ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature to prolong the life of the dry treatment, thus adding to the durability of the rope. On a Beal DryCover rope, the core is not treated.

Key features:
  • Improved resistance to grit and to humidity
  • Limited water absorption
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use


The UNICORE process bonds the sheath of the rope to the core. This prevents sheath slippage, but also helps to keep the structural integrity of the rope if it is cut or damaged.

Key features:
  • Sheath slippage is eliminated
  • Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut
  • Rope cutting is easy: no hot knife required
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50%
Decent weight. These ropes have been dragged over lots of edges and though vegetated routes in the lakes and snowdia and still feel pretty new. I was stuck between these and the golden dry version however these have suited my fine as I only tend to climb on nice days. Maybe the golden dry cobras will last longer but these are still perfect.
