/ Ropes for multi-pitch sport
Can anyone on here, who has been to Ailefroide, help me out.
The guidebooks we were using showed the abseil abseil points and generally they were 30-40m apart. I remember the Orage d'Etoiles, for example, had long abs.
When I was there the year before last I had 60m doubles which allowed me to skip the odd ab but I don't think there was any situation where I thought I'd have been screwed with 50's rather than 50's.
The varying guide books to Ailefroide are readily available in the tourist office and climbing shops in the village.
Enjoy your trip, I cant wait to get back there!
