First Rope Advice 5-Jan-2011 At 4:40:21 PM juanes
Get a thick rope 10.2 mm is a good diameter. My first rope was a sterling marathon dry core. I paid a premium for dry core that I did not need. But boy it did handle well and I bounced on that thing for over 7 years.

Get some slings to reduce the drag (and ware) when leading, judicious use of slings can make the rope run a lot more smoothly than on short draws.

If you are going to set up top ropes buy some 11mm static at least 25 meters. This will make setting up a breeze, and keep your climbing rope nice and healthy.
