“Clipping dream”    “Buttery-smooth belay”
Those were only some of the comments made about this dreamy send rope. If you are looking for a light weight cord for sending your 30 meter overhanging project, the Sterling Nano is your gun. Nothing is worse than going for a clip only to have your belayer unable to feed the fat caterpillar quick enough for you to make that tenuous clip. In those situations, “Sorry bro” doesn’t cut it. Sterling’s Nano will eliminate any hippie stoner excuses about an inability to feed rope in a timely manner. This rope is lightning fast to belay with, and clipping has never been easier. High on the wall, the rope’s weight is virtually unnoticeable, and when you are pumped, that lack of extra weight is important.
 
The Nano isn’t intended to be a “working” cord, instead Sterling saw a need for a “send” rope that would give the climber an extra advantage on redpoint attempts by shaving weight off the their tether and providing a silky smooth hand for the belayer. In spite of this, the DPM staff has been using the Nano over the last three months as their primary rope. We have logged countless falls in an effort to get the
Nano to show us any signs of weakness, but to no avail. That, and the fact that this rope has climbed more 15a’s at the hands of Chris Sharma than any other rope, only adds to our confidence in recommending this rope. Heck, if it’s good enough for Sharma. . .
