Topic - Which rope, ariege holiday

thepinkwaffle - on 12 Aug 2013
I'm after your opinions.
In October our group is going climbing in Ariege, south france. The guide books mention quite a few climbs which just exceed 30m.
Due to baggage restrictions on the flight me and my partner can only really take one rope.
The ropes I have to choose from are a Beal 60m single (not quite long enough for some of the single pitch abseils), some nice hardly used half ropes (60m) or potentially having to buy a 70m as seems to be recommended.
There's also some great looking sport multipitch adventures out there, 9 pitches etc.
So what would you take?
The 60m and make do some how?
The half ropes and use them as a pair, bit odd and tangly for sport climbing but definitely versatile and good for multipitch?
Or buy a 70m if the bank balance will stretch to it :s
