Skinny and fluid for experienced climbers to use on crags, this rope is made for everyone who wants to go straight to essentials. A traditional design with age-old technology is said to be “dry” as its threads are untreated. A good basic workhorse, affordable, with satisfactory fluidity. The Eco-friendly range aims to leave only a small footprint, on both your bank account and the environment. Various decisions have already been implemented, although Millet is always seeking to go further in designing ropes that are even kinder to the planet. None of the threads are dyed, for instance. The Low Impact program for eco-sensible production is all about simplicity: eliminating stages for treatment, drying and thread-transfer between machines (which means fewer temperature rises).

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.
