/ Cordellete what length?
I've googled and come up with a suggestion of 6 metres but that seems like so so much, question therefore is how long should it be? by which I mean how long should it be either looped or from one end to the other (cord) and please let me know which you are referring to. Thanks for the advice.
They are not something I use, but if I was using them for ice-climbing I'd probably go for 6mm rather than 7mm as quite frankly the extra strength is likely to be wasted.
Andy Kirkpatrick has some useful info on his site re cordelettes.
