9.7mm Booster 70m Dry Safe Control
Compact, easy-running and ultra-light, this, the pioneer of thin ropes slides in everywhere. It offers excellent performance for very experienced climbers.
- A good compromise between weight, free-running, grip and strength.
- Low impact force.
- Increased number of falls held.
- Very experienced climbers.
This rope, despite not being the thinnest in the range, is still not for the beginner. Take account of the need for careful choice of belaying technique.

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.
