For nearly 150 years at Mammut we have applied all our experience and knowledge in order to produce the very best possible ropes. Every rope which leaves our factory is manufactured under strict quality controlled conditions and has, in the final control, been found error free. However, our influence ends with the distribution to selected specialist dealers. After purchase, the practical life of the rope begins, and therefore becomes the responsibility of the user. The best rope can only give optimal performance if it is correctly used and treated carefully. Mammut ropes do not need much effort to maintain, but each climber and mountaineer should observe a few basic rules, in order to get the most out of their most important piece of safety equipment.
