Topic - Optimal rope length for Cassin Route, Piz Badile

Big Lee - on 08 Aug 2013
What's the best rope length for the Cassin Route on Piz Badile? I'm assuming the distance between belay bolts is going to dictate matters. Do 60m half ropes actually offer an advantage over 50s or are we just going to be pulling more rope through? Do 60s allow pitches to be strung together at all? Plan would be to descend the North Ridge so also interested in typical distance between ab points in this direction.

Cheers,
Lee
