Victorious summit photos atop a hard-won ski mountaineering objective nearly always fail to capture the nuanced steps of progression which led to that moment. Crevasses, steep snow fields, and icy ridges all had to be navigated to reach that summit, and without reliable and capable tools like the Mammut Glacier Cord Dry 6.0, travel through that terrain can be harrowing (at best). With a Dyneema core, a dry coating, and an incredibly lightweight construction, the Glacier Cord won't freeze up or weigh you down, and will last for years to come. A compact storage sack doubles as a throw bag for precise rope tossing, and allows for compact rope storage inside your pack. Glacier travel, rappelling, or crevasse rescue-- it doesn't matter, the Mammut Glacier Cord Dry 6.0 is the dream tool for those hard fought alpine objectives.

  • Aramid sheath and Mammut Dry coating combine to give this rope an extra grippy texture, meant to improve handling and ease of use.
  • Mammut Dry treatment eliminates water absorption, keeping this rope maneuverable and safe in even the harshest of conditions.
  • This cord is static, and elongates less than 2% when weighted, making it perfect for crevasse rescue.
  • Storage sack keeps your pack neat and doubles as a throw bag for precise rope tossing.
  • Bright yellow coloring makes the Glacier Cord visible in snow and dim pack interiors.
  • Compatible with TIBLOC and MICRO TRAXION.
  • CE EN 564 certified. Not for lead climbing.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Nels
With the rope being only 6mm, what does one use for prussiks? Paracord is too wimpy, but seems to me like the only thing with a smaller diameter, but I'm not trusting p-cord in my system! Same goes for belay devices - even the BD ATC Alpine Guide and Edelrid Micro Jul only goes down to 6.9mm.
Don't see a way to do any crevasse rescue work without some prussiks and belay devices!
Answer from Will
Hey Nels,

Thanks for reaching out! A good way to learn crevasse rescue is to hire a certified guide. They'll be able to do a deep dive into what is the industry standard for crevasse rescue.
Answer from Calvin E
Nels, you are right, 6mm is on the light side, diameter-wise, yet still strong enough with the Dyneema core. I suggest 4 mm polyester cord for using prussiks on the 6mm rope - available from Sterling and other brands. Para cord is not to be trusted with your body weight!
