The Beal Ice Line 8.1mm is a lightweight half-rope made using Beal’s UNICORE technology. UNICORE permanently bonds the sheath to the core to eliminate sheath slippage and improves performance and safety, especially in wet conditions. The Ice Line’s extremely low impact force settles the nerves when facing less-than-perfect protection points in ice and on mixed routes. An ace in the hole that no alpinist can ignore. The Ice Line has Exceedingly low impact force and a smooth performance from one-over-two weave. Ideal for extreme ice and alpine climbing.
Weight: 39 g/m
Impact force: 4.9kN

UIAA Certified Water Repellent - Golden Dry
UC = Unicore Process
CE and UIAA Certified - Half Rope


An astonishing process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope’s suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge (a frequent occurrence in the mountains) it slips and gathers up over some usage. It then becomes impossible to pass this section of rope, whether ascending or descending.


Process whereby every individual core and sheath strand is treated with a hydrophobic chemical formula before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is polymerised at high temperatures. This polymerisation process together with every strand being coated increases the longevity of the treatment. A GOLDEN DRY rope combines 2 treatments: the core’s treatment is added to the DRY COVER sheath treatment. This helps to achieve an astonishingly durable and waterproof rope.


  • Is more frost and water resistant.
  • Gains very little weight in humid conditions.
  • Improves rope suppleness through carabiners and belay devices.
  • Is more abrasion resistant during normal use
