A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
9.4mm Elite 60m
This lightweight rope weighing in at 57.4 g/m is a favorite among the best competitive climbers in the world. It weighs as much as 1/3 less than other similar diameter ropes providing speed and agility needed for tough routes. For its size, the ELITE is pound for pound superior in number of falls and impact force ratings compared to other ropes. The ELITE is best when you need a lightweight rope for those multi-pitch, multi-route days that end in an exhausted hike out by headlamp.

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.
