8mm Unity 50m 2xDry
The double rope technique reduces rope drag and increases fall protection over sharp edges, especially on routes with multiple traverses. This system also offers expedient full-length rappels. Unity is designed for classic climbers who clip protection alternately and for the extremely weight-conscious alpinist.

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.
