Hi. I reckon 40m is the perfect length for gritstone cragging, long enough for any pitch and belay, but no wasted weight or coiling, as with a 50m. It's also a perfect length for the Skye ridge where a thickish rope is reassuring over sharp ledges. I wouldn't intend to use it for long mountaineering routes where my 50m half would be better, so not looking at lightweight, skinny options. Durability and ease of handling are the key attributes.
Mammut Vertex and Edelrid Python are both available in this length and at a good price. But which to go for? Thoughts, please.
