What happened to double ropes? 26-Jun-2018 At 6:54:21 PM kieranl
I still climb mostly on doubles though I've climbed a lot more on a single since I got my nice Edelrid 70mm (the no-specific pattern version that has been on special at AMS for a good while and seems much thinner and lighter than it should be for the alleged diameter (9.8)).

Was climbing on doubles today.even though a single would have worked OK.

Doubles are considerably heavier on the long pitches but make managing trad protection much easier. It's nice not to have to slings on lots of pieces. And when there's a hard bit with two OK runners about two metres apart horizontally they come into their own.

A problem is that a lot of climbers these days aren't used to climbing on doubles and that's something I have to consider if I'm climbing with a new partner.
