I've owned a couple dozen climbing ropes over the past 20 years, and this is by far my favorite, especially with the belay device options that are now available to work perfectly with it (Faders Sum and Grigri 2). I abused my old Nano sport climbing for two seasons and it wore as well as any rope I've had. The hand is perfect and the impact soft. I'm not sure why Sterling doesn't use this same weave on more of their ropes. My only caveat is that I weight about 125lbs, and I have seen two Nano's sheathed by climbers in the 175-200lb range on sport routes where the rope ran over an edge that I have never seen do damage to any other rope. I use this AT model as a regular lead rope for short sport routes, and it is the bomb!
