Topic - Half rope buying advice - rope length

Otis - on 17 Mar 2014
Hi folks,

I'm lookng to buy my first set of half ropes. From my research the pick of the bunch seems to be Mammut Genesis - good reviews, plus I've been very happy with both my Mammut single ropes.

However, I was wondering what length to go for and would appreciate any advice. 50m seems appealing (price and less weight to carry to the crag), but I'm wondering if I'll spend the rest of my days staring upwards at inviting belay ledges wishing I'd gone for the 60m option?

They'll be seeing most of their use on the easier trad routes in North Wales (up to around severe at the moment, but grades will hopefully be on their way up!).

Cheers,

Mike.
