Rope Recommendations 9-Jan-2012 At 1:18:12 PM barney800
I've been climbing with 50m doubles and a 60m single (in the UK and the rest of Europe) and have never felt the need for a longer rope. As far as I can tell, it's generally the more modern sport routes that require longer ropes and most of them are too hard for me anyway! Even then, I could just lead them on my doubles.

I guess 60m doubles could save you a bit of time on the occasional long pitch or abseil, but on balance I bet you spend more time hauling up the ropes after you and cursing the extra weight. More rope = more faff.
