7.8MM 70M 2XDRY
Ideal for when light is right on long alpine routes and tricky weather windows.
When you're pushing for the summit, the Black Diamond 7.8 is the tool for the job. With a burly sheath and a full dry treatment, it handles the onslaught of the mountains and can pair with a second rope for belaying and long rappels.

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.
