/ Verdon - Dalles Grises abseil lengths
I ask myself this every time I'm there. I always end up using 50m twins.
More faff, but much more stress free.
I would just have a go.
No problems with 150 foot (45m ) ropes.
Easy enough to climb out if the ropes are not long enough and plenty other routes to do.
40 is ok, some options as where to stop on the 3rd and 4th abseil depending on your rope length.
but generally, it's good to have 50m ropes for climbing in the verdon, then you will be fine on all abseils.
Fine at the Dalles Grises but we found 60s a better bet for some other areas like Fenrir or swinging about looking for the Biscotte Margarine belay (knot them abseil ropes kids).
Thanks all. I could have saved a bit of time by looking slightly closer at the appropriate page in Rockfax.
I think it will be two 60s that we'll give it a go with.
