Topic - Climbing Ropes - Fall Factor

KenH - on 23 Nov 2013
I have recently bought a 50 metre python 10mm climbing rope. I understand it has a 6 fall rating. What does this mean? I often see people at the climbing wall taking practice falls and out on the crags I regularly see climbers taking 10 or more falls when redpointing a route. What is the significance of the 6 fall rating in practice?
