Rock and Ice Gear Review

The Slimline Elite would be an excellent choice for big-wall rats and grade IV tradsters. Go with the 10.8mm size if you want the extra bulk and security for jugging; use the 10.3mm when weight is more important, e.g. on long day routes where the second may be jugging for speed. Options include 60- or 70-meter lengths, and Blue Water's proven Double Dry treatment.

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.
