Description

The RUMBA 8.0 mm half rope offers great versatility in multi-pitch climbing, mountaineering or ice climbing. Featuring a reinforced sheath for great durability, it also has the Duratec Dry treatment for enhanced performance under all conditions.

Description

The best balance for all-season use:
- for use in rock, mixed, snow or ice environments
- use as half or twin rope
Greater longevity and ease of use in any conditions:
- Duratec Dry water repellent treatment: makes the rope more resistant to water, dirt and abrasion; handling, grip and other characteristics are retained longer in cold, wet conditions
Convenient rope handling :
- Middle Mark: indicates the middle of the rope to facilitate maneuvers
- EverFlex treatment: special thermal treatment stabilizes the core strands and improves consistency; offers excellent grip and consistent handling over time

Material(s): nylon

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.
