Looking for an indoor no thrills, basic rope for lead climbing? Any advice welcome : )

Cheapest available 10mm. Think about how long you want - will a 30m rope suffice for the walls you climb at? Will it still be OK once you've cut a couple of metres off each end because the sheath is fraying?

Yup. Any 10 mm dynamic rope would do the trick. I wouldn't get less than 50 meters though as that would really limit your wall choices and reduce your chance of getting lowered off (indoors at least..) if your rope is too short.

If you belay with a gri-gri, it's worth getting 10 mm but not 10.5 as 10.5 can make it a bit trickier to pay out slack.

Have a look at what you can get in Decathlon if there is one near you

I have been using the DMM shorty for year or so and it still handles well.I have used ropes by various manufacturers and this is by far the best ,no sheath slippage or distortion .
I used full length ropes in the past and the shorty definitely makes life easier.
