Topic - New Rope

James1987 - on 31 Oct 2013
Hi all, new to the site.

Been climbing for around 6 months and looking to invest in my first rope. Can lead at around 6b indoors and I like to push quite hard on those sessions with plenty of falls as a beginner. Given my level (or lack) of experience I wanted some advice on what to look for.

Going to be using mainly indoors over the coming winter but venturing outdoors to do some sport and hopefully some cragging once it dries up a bit. (Maybe even get out before Christmas too). This said I'm most likely going to give the rope a bit of a hammering and have been pointed towards the Edelrid Hawk 10mm, 60m. Anyone got any experience with this rope?

Ideally I will get a cheaper (and shorter) gym rope at some point but at this stage want to get an all-round rope that will last, hence why I'm willing to spend a few quid more than the python/boa which I had been looking at.

Any advice is appreciated,
