/ First rope. Which to pick?
I'm about to purchase my first rope. However, I could only get hold of the following lines of rope: Beal Diablo 10.1 (Unicore), Petzle Mambo 10.1 or the Edelweiss Ally 10.3. Any recommendations or things to look out before I make the choice?
What sort of climbing do you plan to use your rope for?
Do you climb with other people? What sorts of ropes do they use?
I'm doing sport and indoor lead. Im sharing it with a friend of mine and this is our very first rope.
If it is just for sport/indoor, buy a single rope around 10mm and go for the one that is the best colour :) Or the cheapest if that's more important that having a pretty colour.
