A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
8.3mm Gill 60m Dry
Gill 8.3 provides a possibility to be used as a double rope in the mountains, what increases the safety in case of stone fall. It is a light rope with long durability. Excellent handling and knotability are achieved through a precise construction.
Area of use: classical climbing, high mountains, ice climbing, mixed climbing.
Mission: Being certified as a half as well as a twin rope, it opens you new possibilities for conquesting the highest peaks.

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.
