/ Ceuse rope length
I had a beal 70m Joker, but hated it because it wore out so quickly. any rope advice would be great too.
1st time i went i took a 60m and my mate took an 80m. Mine was a little too short and his was over kill.
2nd time took a 70m and an 80m, 70m was just fine and the 80m felt overkill again.
Also most for the long are extentions to shorter routes with belays before the extention start. So you could lower to the belay and ab off or rethread and get lowered if your rope is too short.
On ropes buy a Mammut rope amazing build quality and almost last forever. Something like a 9.2 Revelation:
You're too much of a punter to do anything at Ceuse...
PS, I'll be in Wales from the 23rd Sept if you're around and keen to climb?
70m rope is spot on for ceuse. the mammut rope is awesome, sure you have used it with me, lasts very well and handles nicely.... when you going? Phil

Agree that 70m will be fine for most routes. You'll be scared long before the rope length is an issue :).
Took a 70m DMM prodigy and that was great, but also would agree with Mammut ropes being really good.
If you're buying a new rope anyway, buy an 80 rather than a 70 so it'll still be 70 when you've trashed the ends and cut them off a few times.
