How to Choose a Climbing Rope

Type: There are single ropes, double ropes, and half ropes. You want a single rope. Euro freaks like your boyfriend like to use double rope technique but don't let them fool you with their sexy accent- double ropes cost more, weigh more, and are more complicated to use. Learn single rope technique first and then you can go euro style if you like!

Length: They generally come in 50m, 60m, and 70m lengths. The current standard is 60m and I wouldn't get anything else. You are unlikely to encounter a situation where you need the 70m length, and I generally find that rope drag gets pretty bad after 60m anyways.

Diameter: The fatter your rope the longer it will last, but it will be heavier and not handle as nicely. I find that that 10mm is the best compromise- I would not go above 10.2mm (my current rope is 10.2mm), and probably would not go below 9.8mm or so.
