I recently used a 60 combined with a 50 on slab at Buffalo.

Get two ropes the same length!

(As an aside, double 75m ropes, or maybe even longer, would be good for slab at Buffalo!)

Yeah, I'm aware of the idea of linking pitches, and I like doing it at crags where it works. Most of the time at araps though, I find myself getting shut down by drag long before I run out of rope (no ammount of rope trickery can fix a traverse into a corner, followed by a roof, followed by a 5m wide terrace, followed by a crux)

There's a few exceptions which are really good to do with a long rope, but on all the single pitch stuff and most of the multipitching I reckon 40m of rope is ample
