In reply to no_more_scotch_eggs: I have no idea what your route entails and whether the rope is for pitching short steps or just to be roped up. My info is probably a bit misguided but if it's for the latter then I believe the beal ice line can be cut to measure at 30M.
Excellent rope to handle but it is a skinny half (8.1) but brilliantly light and packs down small.
thinking of future use, probably the former- for use on scrambles/easy winter climbs where there may be short steps that warrant pitching, but not longer passages of steeper ground that would justify a 50-60m rope
and where needing to ab off is hopefully not going to be an issue!
so a full weight single rope is likely to see more use for us, i reckon,
