DavidG Posted August 17, 2003 Share Posted August 17, 2003 I thought this had been debated at length, but I can't seem to find the relevant thread. I would appreciate thoughts and ideas and links on the following matter: I have a trip coming up with sections of moderate, low angle alpine ice (50 to 60 degrees) and cravasse negotiation. My climbing partner just got some funky new ice floss ( http://www.bluewaterropes.com/dynamicropes/DynamicRopes-8.0mm.htm ). Do I need to go out and get new thinner cord (5.5 mm titan? ) for my prusiks or will my old 7 mm perlon prusiks work fine? Will a fourth wrap with the 7mm cord add enough friction? I've been looking on the web for info, but so far am stymied. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
