Topic - uiaa fall rating

Josi - on 28 Nov 2012
I've just bought a new rope for sport climbing and was looking at the uiaa falls rating and was wondering what is the definition of a uiaa fall?
I've also been doing a lot of 'practise' falling to try and get comfortable with whole falling thing because the primal fear of falling has definately been holding me back....So i've got fairly comfortable taking 20-30 footers. Going past a bolt and upto the next or getting to the lower off and getting a hand full of slack before jumping and this is feeling ok but it has got to shorten the lifespan of a rope and i'm just wondering how long before I should be replacing the rope used for this. The sheath is showing a little fuzziness and minor signs of melting. I've been using a mammut vertex.
