The thin and light PASO GUIDE 7.7 mm rope is designed for intensive ice climbing and technical mountaineering. It is equipped with the water-repellent Guide UIAA Dry impregnation, which protects it from moisture and makes it suitable for daily use in extreme conditions.
Guide UIAA Dry Finishing The water-repellent Guide UIAA Dry impregnation is Petzl's most elaborate finish for frequent use in humid environments. The difference is particularly noticeable in daily use in extreme environments (ice climbing, mountaineering). The finishing also improves the rope's resistance to dirt and abrasion. The Guide UIAA Dry impregnation meets the requirements of the UIAA Water repellent test. The test results show a water absorption of less than 2%. The Guide UIAA Dry impregnation of the ropes takes place in two steps: before braiding the rope, the rope core is impregnated. The complete rope is then impregnated in order to reduce water absorption and the penetration of small particles into the rope to a large extent.
EverFlex finishing The special finishing stabilises the threads and makes the rope more uniform. The rope lies well in the hand and guarantees a permanently good handling. These properties are also achieved in semi-static ropes by means of special braiding.
