What happened to double ropes? 2-Jul-2018 At 7:08:41 PM Martym
I've been climbing since 2001 - so I'm hardly old skool.
On my first trip to araps in 2006, we brought doubles and I thought they were the best thing ever, and got a set of mammut genesis that I love. One of them got a bit manky so i bought a Mammut Serenity which is rated as a single, but is about 8.7; so I've still got the option to double rope when required.

What do most people do when they abseil into the Grose? Backpack carry their second rope?

I would think that it's not that you don't see them as often; it's just there are so many more climbers out there. I wonder how many people at the Mount own all their gear vs sharing it? You don't need doubles on the organ pipes.
