QC on resting your ropes between whippers: 6-Feb-2012 At 3:41:38 PM Grinder
The way I read the article is that the fall is 20" = 50cm, with a runner at 56"= 1.4m. That actually makes the fall a very small one but quite a short piece of rope to absorb the fall with. You'd think the trend would be the same though for bigger falls and longer bits of rope. It's also food for thought after you and the climbing team rap off your route and then give the ropes a good pull. The forces will be smaller than with falls, but it is still accumulated stretch that the rope needs time to recover from.
