Right out of the bag the Insight rope had the flexibility of a yoga instructor and the reliability of an old friend. The bright color made the rope shine against any rock, and the huge tarp kept it clean of grit for pitch after pitch. We had some difficulty packing the rope into the slick tight bag, but appreciated the ease of carrying and the clear window. 9.6 mm felt like a tag line and clipped like a dream; we could hardly believe it would keep us safe but trusted our lives to the Kailas name. We climbed in two groups of two for the day, and everyone wanted to do their big leads on the Insight rope!
