• TBH I don’t know. It was a long time ago, we only did HVS / E1, and we did ok with a 50m rope. We probably used the guidebook you’ve just bought.

  • I’ve got the 1994 edition of the CC Lundy guide which although out of date is the benchmark. I think the later versions just have more colour topos and a few new routes in the higher grades. I only climb up to hvs anyway so no issues there.

    I’ll be taking regular twin 50m ropes but considering taking the plunge for a dedicated ab rope. Just seems to be a good idea to have an escape route. Have done multipitch abseils before but never into sea cliffs and would rather buy a long rope than call the coastguard lol.
