Topic - Single vs twin ropes

matt1024 on 07 May 2012
I'm a beginner trad climber just starting out and I have a question regarding ropes to use outdoors. I have a single 60m 10.2mm rope for use on sport routes and indoors at the gym although I've heard twin ropes are more suited to trad climbs. Is it safe to double up my single rope to act as twin ropes on short routes (obviously less than 30m) or is it better just to use the single and accept the higher rope drag?

Thanks for the help.
