A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
11.0mm Latitude 70m
The LATITUDE is the largest diameter of the PMI Dynamic™ single ropes. It has an incredible fall rating of 16 while providing an easily managed agile feel. Ideal for work-at-height applications that allow dynamic rope use. Also, great for groups of all climbing abilities, ropes courses and guiding with high use and abuse potential. The impact force and weight ratio are ideal for this solid rope that is built to last and take on any challenge you choose.

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.
