The Edelrid Heron is trusted by many. The high quality finishing processes, narrow diameter and being treated with Dry Shield and Pro Shield, makes the Heron suitable for just about any climbing purpose.
Even if you are not planning to take it winter climbing, the dry treatment improves the lifespan of your rope by keeping dirt out. The Pro Shield treatment is a Teflon coating that increased the number of standard falls, and improves dirt and water resistance.
The Edelrid Heron also features Thermo Shield treatment for perfect handling. This gives it the famous Edelrid suppleness and handling characteristics. The thermal stabilising process ensures that the core and sheath yarns are perfectly balanced.
