Topic - Ultra Lightweight Trad Rack

snapperdan - on 16 Feb 2014
I'm looking to combine a bit of fell running with some climbing this summer, so I can tick off some routes on high moorland crags in the Peak, but I don't fancy soloing routes miles away from anyone!

I won't be looking to climb at my limit, so I'm prepared to carry a minimal rack, probably just a set of nuts, a couple of slings, five quickdraws and a few carabiners ect.

Hopefully I can split the rack with a partner and we can fit everything in a couple of small 20 litre OMM sacks.

The one thing which is bugging me is what rope to take? Could I get away with using a light 25m half rope as a single? I'm not anticipating taking big lobs on it - it would be more of a confidence thing really...

Like these chaps maybe? http://www.mountain-lite.co.uk/index.cfm?action=article.read&articleId=637CD185-A5A6-93BC-939B61...
