The SPIRE is a classic all-purpose, versatile crag rope that appeals to practically every climber. It is a favorite for guides that want accommodate a wide range of climbing abilities and experiences for groups. It has a thicker sheath that can take a beating in a variety of conditions including alpine and mixed routes. The SPIRE attains remarkably high specification ratings while maintaining a light weight of 69 g/m. This is a no-brainer go-to rope that you will want in your gear cache for almost any climbing situation!

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.
