The only catch to the Flycatcher is that you have to buy two. Edelrid chose this packaging option to reinforce the idea that it’s a twin rope, designed to be used simultaneously while climbing. We won’t report you, however, for breaking the kit in two and using the amazing 6.9mm rope as you see fit. The skinniest and lightest twin rope in the world is a great option for approaches that involve climbing combined with exits that involve long rappels. Use the same ropes for both. The Flycatcher kit also comes with a Micro Jul belay device, since it’s the only such device approved for use with such skinny rope.
