Rope Selector Qustion 3

What length of rope would suit you best?

* 50 Metre, Long enough for most UK rock, ice routes
* 55 Metre, as with the 50 Metre but with a little extra for luck!
* 60 Metre, for use abroad where routes tend to be longer and abseils more frequent

The most popular rope length is the standard 50 Metre but if you plan to use the rope in the Alps then it would be wise to get the 60 Metre. You have been warned, don't get caught short!
