The SPIRE is an excellent all-around rope that is as at home on the crags as it is on long alpine routes. At less than 70g/m, it is a favorite of guides and others who want to combine maximum mileage with minimum weight.

Details of PMI Dynamic Ropes

This video goes over PMI's rope line, and goes into a lot of details of UIAA testing. It's a powerpoint presentation turned into a video, so there's reading and graphics but no voice. I found muting the sound helped because it made it less distracting to read the text.
