Re: Which Rope Do You Guys/Girls Have.

Marlow Gecko 13mm. Well cheap and my first rope. Not as good as other ropes but if i can gain pace on a cheap rope when i finally move onto a nicer rope my climbing should speed up In theory

37m NE Tachyon. Nice and light, good in the SJ and with hitches. Doesn't have the same bulk as some other ropes, but handles just the same.

35m of Aeris, without spliced ends it's cheap as chips and works nice with the HC.
Also have 2 shorter lengths of the same for little trees.... Good rope.
And BRITISH!
