      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Light is right..or is it?

Recommended Posts

Not as much criticizing ropes just pointing out what I have found as disadvantages and advantages of the gear. But all good discussion points.


FWIW when 1/2 and twin ropes were over 8.5 there was less of an issue. BITD a 9mm rope WAS a dbl. Now a 9.1 is an awesome single, DBL or Twin. Which says a lot to how far ropes have come.


The advantages or disadvantages of the dbl/single rope techniques I'll leave for another discussion.

There are some companies that make light single ropes that don't stretch all that much.
