What happened to double ropes? 12-Jul-2018 At 6:49:29 AM martym
I know I'm getting trolled, but in the spirit of the honest discussion Mikl has started I'm going to lay it out clear:
I'm specifically referring to long abseil in areas, for example Pierces Pass in the Blue Mts.
Option A - use doubles to ab in & climb out.
Option B - Climb in two parties of 2; ab down on two combined single ropes, climb out.
Option C - Ab down with your climbing rope and another rope/static line and... put it in your backpack?
This is what I'm wondering - as I have seen several groups climbing on singles on said Pierces Pass multipitches, haven't thought to ask "how did you get down?"
There is a long walking path I believe, but it seems more likely they abseiled. Are they all in groups of 4 or more? Maybe.

And that's it for me. I know when I'm not welcome.
