9.1mm Joker Unicore 60m Dry
The Beal Joker 9.1mm UNICORE is the ultimate rope that conforms to all three dynamic rope standards; single, half, twin. The Joker will be loved by the most extreme climbers that seek light and easy running lines. The more avid traditional climbers will hold tightly to the Joker for its multipurpose abilities on ridge and face routes, as well as mixed ice and snow. With Beal’s UNICORE technology, the sheath and core are permanently bonded together to eliminate sheath slippage and improve performance and safety. STRONG POINTS: • UNICORE Process • Single, half, and twin certified • Abrasion and water resistant with Golden Dry or Dry Cover USES: Performance minded sport, trad, alpine, and ice climbing.

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.
