I climb comfortably at 5.11c at my gym (Top Rope Only), but I have never climbed outdoors so a group of experienced climbers have offered to teach my friend and I how to lead sport routes. I have chosen all my gear except for the rope. I am currently looking at the following: Option 1, Option 2, Option 3.
The rope will be used for two days outdoors then indoors until May @ 2-3 times a week then outdoors again.
I'd like to know from the experienced users here if I should invest in the dry treatment? Am i going to feel a difference between a 9.2kN and 9.5kN impact force? As well will i notice a difference of 2.1% in static elongation?
As of right now I am leaning towards option 1, but if there are valid reasons to spend the little bit extra for the dry option 3 then i will gladly go that route.
My friend an I are the same height and weight: 5'10 170lbs.
EDIT: This rope will NOT be used in any wet conditions such as Mountaineering or Ice Climbing...
