11.7mm, smooth covered double-braid 24-strand Focus climbing rope.
This smaller-diameter climbing line offers a slightly larger grip than other 11mm lines. The size is 11.7mm, making it slightly thicker than other 7/16" rope such as Yale's Blaze, which is great for climbers who want to use climbing hardware that requires a smaller-diameter line, but who prefer a slightly larger grip. Focus is light yet durable, has good hand and knotability, and runs well in hardware. The double-braid construction and tight cover of Focus works well through mechanical devices.
Focus has a 11.7mm diameter, combining the lightweight characteristics of 11mm ropes with the more conventional sizing of 1/2" climbing lines. Yale makes Focus with a 24-strand "Tite-Braid" cover that reduces cover milking. The braided filament polyester core keeps the rope firm and flexible even after extensive work use.
This popular rope is known by many other names in other colors. (BlueMoon, Poison Ivy, etc.)
