WHICH ROPE ????????
9:38:25 PM
G'day to all you fellow climbers. I am a very new climber and sofar have all the necessary gear for sport and trad climbing, including a complete rack of cams, nuts etc. I currently have a 60 m beal dynamic rope, "FLYER II 10.2 mm" Golden dry and Dry cover.

My question is I want to buy another rope and I love the feel of the Beal, and was wondering what I should buy next ????? Does anyone have any suggestions, I have used other ropes 11mm and they feel very thick, I really want ease of use and a high number of falls.

Why not try and try a lighter rope, say 60m 9.4 mamut that way you can lead with two ropes when the
climb wanders or goes out the roof, or just use the light one when redpointing or pushing your limit.
It's a very versitile option, and mamut ropes feel great and are super hard wearing

For trad climbing Id definately recommend 2x 50 or 60 metre 1/2 ropes, around 8 - 8.2mm

Pretty much, the thinner the rope the less falls it tends to take, with double ropes you can (on average) share the falls more than a single rope, in my opinion. It also greatly reduces the drag, and is better for protection on routes which wander (such as multipitches) or traverses.
