8mm Unity 30m Dry
Used as a half rope, the Unity is designed to be alternately clipped to protection and constructed to reduce drag and increase fall protection over sharp edges. The Unity provides outstanding performance on routes with multiple traverses. Unity is also light enough and tough enough to be used as a glacier rope on the world's toughest mountains. Unity is available in 8mm iEndura Dry and 2X Dry or 9mm in 2X Dry. Select models feature our exclusive TPT 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.
