Stephen_Ramsey Posted June 12, 2003 Share Posted June 12, 2003 I've got a 6mm x 50m cord that I would like to be able to tie to my 8.5mm x 50m rope, for the occasional rappel. I would be using it if I have to bail on a climb that is steep enough where down-climbing is not an appealing option, but not so steep that I would have double ropes (e.g., steep couloirs and such). Anyone know if this technique (using a 6mm rap cord + the climbing rope) is used much? Does it work well? If so, what is the best knot for tying the two ropes together? For two ropes of equal diameter, I would normally use the EDK. But for the 6mm and 8.5mm together, I'm not sure what to use. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
