MAXIM’s Pinnacle series consists of lightweight 9.4mm (EU) and 9.5mm (US) ropes with our twill pattern sheath technology (TPT). This results in a smooth climbing rope, which significantly reduces drag and improves hand. Due to their light weight and small pack size, the ropes are perfectly suited for multi-pitch climbs.

The well-known MAXIM Pinnacle is a lightweight 9.5mm rope designed to meet the needs of today’s sport climber. Just recently, MAXIM added a 9.4mm model for the European market to the range. Both rope models are light enough for redpointing, but still have the legendary durability for which MAXIM is known. Pinnacle is also an option for the trad climber who wants to climb longer pitches without adding weight or sacrificing durability and abrasion resistance. The Pinnacle ropes have a feel to them that is like no other climbing rope on the planet!
All Pinnacle ropes have an Endura DRY-treated core. Some versions are 2x-DRY meaning that we coat the sheath as well. These models meet the UIAA Dry standard, making Pinnacle a good choice for a lightweight single ice rope as well.
The sheath of the Pinnacle series features our Twill Pattern technology (TPT) which makes it super smooth for raps and minimizes drag on your pro. Our friend, Randy W from the Subaru Adventure Team, calls the Pinnacle Yellow Jacket the “buttery snake” due to its superior handling. It is one of the best ropes available on the market today!
Made in the USA and EU! These cords are proudly made by expert crafts men and women in our US facility located in Fall River, Massachusetts and our CZ facility located in Veseli, Czech Republic.
