Literature^The Swift is a killer all around choice, whether you're talking alpine rock or glacier travel or something to ski with.
What kinds of applications were you going to use it for? Often I can get away with a 60m half/twin rope if it's only long rappels that I need but not necessarily longer pitches.
DingoSeanI use a 50m 8.9 "Simond" dry rope that I got from Decathlon... cost me like 120 US or something. seems to be pretty good honestly. I use it for everything from indoor top roping to outdoor sport climbing to the occasional skimo adventure.
-WZ-are you looking for a single rope / twin / static? RAD line is great for glacier travel, rappelling etc but obviously you cant lead on it. Mammut serenity 8.7 is killer if your looking for a lightweight single
Butter4dayzHonestly don’t have the skills yet to glacier travel. Would be with my guide and therefore he already has a rope. Mostly for rappelles into lines. So yeah lightweight, don’t mind whether twin/double or single cause I would always be using it to rap.
already have a different 10 mm 60 m rope for the odd climbing but way too heavy to bring around skiing
