Climber Gear Review no rating given just a review

I’m not going to name names here regarding the bad experiences that I’ve had with ropes, but suffice to say I’ve got my 'Yes' and my 'No' camps. After testing the Boa 9.8mm, Edelrid are definitely a 'Yes' and as such I’d even consider checking out one of their more specialist, skinnier options like the Corbie 8.6mm as a specialist tool for long, pumpy on-sights or redpoints.

This is called speed dating because you two only have 5 minutes to get to know each other and see if you are match. The session starts and stops when the bell rings. Rock Climber, meet Edelrid Boa DuoTec. Boa, this is Rock Climber. The session starts now. You guys have fun.

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.
