Re: Calling out the Hacks.

People were running up and down the apron today with no rope...I told a guy not to die as he took off, partially joking but also because I agree with everyone above that it is inconsiderate to solo around so many people. I'm all for soloing and understand how great it feels to climb without gear, bu...

Re: Preferred Rope Lengths?

That's it, and if you clip them individually then clip them both after and fall, the different rope speeds running through the single biner will create some nasty friction....

Re: Preferred Rope Lengths?

Preferred Rope Lengths?

I just moved from Oz and am needing to buy a cord. As an avid double rope user I was dismayed at the MEC guru's advice that folks out here don't use doubles, ever, but use a single with a retrieval line.
