A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
8.3mm Accord 40m
Compact rope which has minimal interfiber friction, thereby increasing durability.
Weight, diameter and number of falls are balanced in such a way that Accord 8.3 can be used as both a half and twin rope.
Used in pairs, the climber can choose between the twin rope technique or half rope technique - whatever technique is required at the time.
Thermotransfer end marking.

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.
