climbing on a single half rope? 29-Apr-2011 At 4:46:21 PM jkane
Oh yeah, it's me that got confused.

Man do I feel dumb now! I can only blame my hangover.

So yes, climbing on a single strand of a half (or double) rope is ok in terms of taking falls on it. I don't like the idea but I'm not sure why. Probably because belaying is trickier and a thinner rope might be more prone to damage.

Me and a mate sometimes use our single ropes as double ropes. We are both too stingy to buy a set and obviously have commitment issues where climbing partners are concerned.
