I bought a 100m abseil rope, at a very reasonable price (10.5mm £100), from a caving supply company. However having lugged it around Pembroke, a few times, it seems that cutting it down to save weight might be a good option. 60m is the longest ab I've found in Pembroke and I believe 70m would be fine for Gogarth so, before I irrevocably cut that 30m off, can anyone suggest why I might retain anymore of the length?

Done that one I can't remember how we got down now (rope-wise that is but it was down a steep slope on the RHS,looking in)
It might be some time before I get to Lundy again so I might chop to 70 or 80m on the basis that it might need replacing by then (or I could borrow one)
