All-round rope for a huge range of applications! The 9.8 Eternity is the first choice when a very versatile rope with perfect handling is required. Three different treatment categories can be selected depending on the intended uses. The DRY treatment guarantees long lasting protection from dirt and water.

For 2015 Mammut has introduced a new line of ropes with some pretty standard-setting dry technology. After six months of testing the Eternity Dry Duodess 9.8mm, I’ve been really happy with its performance, even surprised. This rope has surpassed my expectations for durability, and just as impressive, it has remained grime-free.
In fact, I can confidently say that the Mammut Eternity Dry Duodess 9.8mm has stayed cleaner longer than any rope I’ve used—dry or otherwise.
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.
