WeighMyRack Gear Review First hand review

I’ve used the Apus Pro exclusively for all ice and mixed routes this season. I’ve definitely gotten out quite a bit and have done a couple new routes with them and they’re sweet! The Apus Pro has no twists, is very dry, and it’s easy to manage. What more can you ask for?

Rock and Run Gear Review no rating given

The Apus epitomises the handling and quality that Edelrid ropes are famed for. An ideal high performance rope for when weight saving is important or for a multi-discipline climber who wants just one set of half-ropes. Pros include the Apus’ minimal in weight and diameter, the Pro Dry finish for outstanding dirt and water resistance, Thermo Shield treatment for perfect handling and Bluesign® standard for the environmentally conscious. 

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.
