Topic - Abseiling on two uneven diameter ropes

Pete_Frost on 29 Aug 2013
It is common alpine practice to climb on a single rope and to carry an equal length of 6mm static cord to use for pulling down the rope when abseiling (see Trad Climbing + and other books for details). Given that the 6mm cord doesn't take any body weight, and is just used to drag the single rope down, why use 6mm? Why not go for the smallest diameter that is comfortable to grip?
