Topic - Abseiling on two different diameter ropes.

womblesi on 04 Feb 2013
Hi,

I have read an article that you should not abseil on two ropes that significantly different in diameter, such as 11mm and 8.4, as the thicker rope will create more friction and pass slower through the plate than the thinner rope. But apparently this is not such an issue with two ropes of a similar diameter.

Has anyone got any experience on abseiling on a 9.8 and an 8.6 and if this would be OK or not.

Thanks

Simon
