/ Aig. du Midi: Cosmiques Arete rope length
It's exactly 25m from the abseil point to the ledge at the bottom of the couloir, so 50m. However, I've often done it with a 35m rope but obviously this means that you arrive part way down the couloir and have to pull the rope there, then down climb, which isn't really a problem unless the couloir is full of ice.
i take a 38m length of 7mm which gets me from the squeeze at the anchor chains to a couple of metres from where you move out of the gully. works perfectly for me.
