A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
8.9mm Erratic Unicore® 70m 2xDry
The all new ERRATIC has every feature that you need all wrapped up into one rope for any climbing situation. It is a single rope that is ultra-lightweight with a solid feel and precision control. The ERRATIC utilizes Unicore® technology, resulting in nearly zero sheath slippage, even if the sheath is damaged. This rope is also UltraDry™ treated for those ambitious alpine expeditions and for mixed rock and ice routes. It is also ideal for trad and sport climbing, especially when sending difficult routes where weight, speed and performance are your tools for success.

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.
