Topic - Rope Length for Touring

AndrewHuddart - on 04 Mar 2013
Off away week and I'm not to excited about carrying one of my old 50m 7.5mm icelines for 4 days and am seriously considering chopping it.

While shorter is lighter and lighter is better, my partner won't be too chuffed if I turn up with 5m of rope: I'm thinking 30m or 40m would be more appropriate. We don't expect any abseils on the route so it's hopefully insurance again crevasse rescue.

What's the prevailing opinion? Is 30m too short?
