Topic - Recommend a rope for alpine mountaineering/scottish winter/trad

Brian Pollock - on 28 May 2013
I'm considering buying a new rope and would appreciate some advice.

I currently own a 70m single rope used for sport climbing. However, I would like something lightweight and versatile for use on alpine mountaineering routes, Scottish winter climbing and also useful for UK trad.

Would a 50m half be best (assuming partners also had the same)?

I don't suppose there is much point buying another single?

I see some people consider a half to be enough for moving together on alpine mountaineering routes and would perhaps carry a second half for more technical ground.

Thanks.
