9.8mm Kalimnos 60m
Roca has been making ropes for over 125 years and is well known in Europe. All Roca ropes are CE certified.
One of the lightest and most effective ropes on the market. It is ideal for extreme sport climbing. Easy to handle and clip carabiners to. Excellent shock absorbency properties. HARD CHOC System included. The new rope from ROCA in 9.8 mm is designed for sport climbing routes. Combines lightness, durability and works fine in all semi automatic belay divices. Excellent for sport routes and multi-pitch equipped routes.
Hard Choc technology: A rope's weak point is its resistance to an impact on a rough rock edge. Conventional ropes break when submitted to this type of fall. HARD CHOC technology passes this test: a fall on a piece of metal that has a 90° angle and a rounded edge with a radius of 1 mm.

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.
