Maxim Climbing Ropes
MAXIM’s Pinnacle is a lightweight 9.5mm rope designed to meet the needs of today’s sport climber. It is light enough for redpointing, but still has the legendary durability for which MAXIM is known. Pinnacle is also an option for the trad climber who wants to climb longer pitches without adding weight or sacrificing durability and abrasion resistance. All Pinnacle ropes have an Endura DRY-treated core. Some versions are 2x-DRY meaning that we coat the sheath as well. These models meet the UIAA Dry standard, making Pinnacle a good choice for a lightweight single ice rope as well.
The sheath of the Pinnacle series features our Twill Pattern technology (TPT) which makes it super smooth for raps and minimizes drag on your pro. Our friend, Randy W from the Subaru Adventure Team, calls the Pinnacle Yellow Jacket the “buttery snake” due to its superior handling. It is one of the best ropes available on the market today!

**No blanket safe working load (SWL) recommendations can be made for any line because SWL's must be calculated based on application, conditions of use, and potential danger to personnel among other considerations. It is recommended that the end user establish working loads and safety factors based on best practices established by the end user's industry; by professional judgment and personal experience; and after thorough assessment of all risks. The SWL is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or in cases of exceptional service such as shock loading, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the SWL of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength of the rope by a safety factor. The safety factor ranges from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses and is typically set at 15 for life lines.
