A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
7.7mm Ice Floss 37m 2xDry
We designed the 7.7 mm Ice Floss twin exclusively for extreme alpine and ice climbing. This design is the ultimate in lightweight, compact ropes. Its smooth, single pick sheath reduces rope drag. Ice Floss is the choice of world renowned climbers because of the usual BlueWater performance and quality characteristics. Completely redesigned with a 40 carrier braid sheath.

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.
