The Climax is not dry treated so you’re limited to climbing with it in the summer and it isn’t the lightest 9.6mm rope on the market, roughly 8 pounds. However, the extra weight serves as extra durability and you’d be really hard-pressed to notice the weight difference from some of its other 9.6mm competitors. The thing that knocks the sheath off from other ropes it the price tag, retailing for roughly $169.00 for a 60 meter length, you’re not going to find a cheaper or better rope in this diameter range, unless it’s on sale.
If you’re looking for a durable rope without forking out the extra dinero the Climax is the best choice in my opinion. You’ll find it in a 60 meter length and a 70 meter length. read the full review
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
