ropes: Twins vs Halves vs Doubles

Postby BAbycoat » Thu Apr 12, 2007 5:16 am

Couldn't find a similar topic elsewhere in these forums, so for newbies in general:

- Half and Double ropes are synonymous
- Twin ropes are different.

Without wanting to re-invent the wheel (i.e. I'm lazy), check out http://www.tradgirl.com/climbing_faq/advanced.htm#doubles.

If you don't know the difference, you should probably stay safe and buy a single rope.

Anyone want to add more?
