Topic - How long do climbing ropes last when not in use?

Richard Justice - on 13 Feb 2014
I have recently got back into climbing.
I have three ropes ( a single and a double) that have been sat in the loft for 10 years in rope bags, and are unused.
I am inclined to think they are okay, the ones in the shops certainly don't have sell by dates. What do other people think?
Not worth the risk, and save them for top roping?
Or still as good as new?

Thanks
