A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
10.1mm Marathon Pro 80m Bipattern
The bi-pattern version of the new 10.1mm exemplifies what a modern day climbing rope should be - a work rope and redpoint rope. Its sheath construction provides superior abrasion resistance for the abuse dished out when working routes. And its lightweight, balanced construction offers effortless clipping of gear, which is a critical timesaver on redpoints.

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.
