Me too - 6mm for cordalettes. I also carry a metre of 5mm cord which is used for auto-block knots on rap, escaping belays and to prussic (although I have never had to use it to prussic)

I had the pleasure of watching a friend struggle up a new 9.2mm rope with a 7mm prussic cord. Something to consider on your next epic...
