A Love Letter to My Sterling Evolution Velocity Rope

Dear Sterling Evolution Velocity,

Although you’re not always my first rope (the Skinny Bitches often get more of my attention), when push comes to shove, the skinny ones stay home and you come with me to get the goods.

Evolution Velocity you’re my trusted go-to for big adventures and when I’m pushing myself on testy sport climbs.

Whenever I really need the #freedomtofocus, you’ve got me. You’re my gal. 

Remember that hard project we worked together at Rifle last year? It was a team effort. I couldn’t have done it without you. I was scared shitless but after those two big falls into your soft catch, you gave me the confidence to send.

Your integrity, fine handling, burly sheath and dry treated core all combine to make you dependable, trustworthy and solid.

Evolution Velocity, you are so available: from 35 meters to 80 meter lengths, both solid with a middle mark and bi. Your availability makes you even sexier. 

And, I’m not sure how you do it, but Evolution Velocity, you have the uncanny ability to make 9.8 feel like the new 9.5.  

You’re going to love our next project!

Xxo Angela
